Big disappointment
28 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was impressed with Allison Maclean's shirt film, "Kitchen Sink," and that was main motivation for checking out "Crush." Well, the film was hard to find and it wasn't worth the wait. It's slow, boring and barely intrigued me. Marcia Gay Harden is always great, but she couldn't breathe life into this nearly comatose flick. The director obviously wasn't concerned with pacing.

There's not too many bad things I can say artistic-wise. It's simply one of those artsy, pretentious films that disguises dullness as subtlety. The plot doesn't contain any surprises. The premise is far from original. So what's the point?
