Changing Lanes

A rush-hour fender-bender on New York City's crowded FDR Drive, under most circumstances, wouldn't set off a chain reaction that could decimate two people's lives. But on this day, at this time, a minor collision will turn two complete strangers into vicious adversaries. Their means of destroying each other might be different, but their goals, ultimately, will be the same: Each will systematically try to dismantle the other's life in a reckless effort to reclaim something he has lost.

It was pretty.... interesting, but I can't imagine it's the sort of thing I'd ever re-visit. Strong performances are forthcoming from Sam Jackson and Toni Collette, everyone else is sort of stale. There's not a lot of movies out there like _Changing Lanes_, so it's a shame that it didn't end stronger. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole_.

Decent watch, probably won't watch again, and can't whole-heartedly recommend. It is amazing all that can happen from a simple car collision, but it is more of a privileged jerk effect than the Butterfly Effect. This whole movie is sort of a philosophical discussion of moral ambiguity with a secondary question of whether one side fuels the other. While I enjoy this do, don't show philosophical battle, the realism of the insanity that occurs in this movie is terrifying. The movie is as good as it could be, but it's awkwardly average in the end.
