Roush Review: A Crash Course in L.A. Life

Brian Tee and Arlene Tur, Crash

Seems every movie channel wants its own Mad Men–style prestige project. Which could explain why pay-cable upstart Starz has raided the Oscar vault to turn the 2006 best-picture winner, Crash, into an ambitious, if not immediately convincing, weekly series.

It really was just a feel of that film I was going for.”A brief clip reel was all that Starz was able to show critics, but the producers (inc... read more
