Running Head: CONFLICT FILM1Interpersonal Conflict in FilmKaryn Lenhardt-BettsCOMM 200 - Interpersonal CommunicationInstructor Joan GoldingSeptember 30, 2013CONFLICT FILM2Interpersonal Conflict in FilmInterpersonal conflict is something that every person will experience at one point oranother in their life. Interpersonal conflict can occur at all levels of communication betweenpeople, this is the case with the movie Crash which is an intense look at interpersonalcommunication and conflict in our modern society. Crash follows the lives of several residentsof Los Angeles that are all unknowingly connected through the process of interpersonalcommunication and conflict.The opening scene has one of the main characters Graham, making a profound statement.Graham says, Its the sense of touch I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash intoeach other just so we can feel something (Haggis, 2004). Much of the plot in Crash stems fromthe ineffective management of conflict and power. Several conflicts are explored between thesepeople living in the racially charged and stereotypical city. Each character deals with theconflicts they face in different ways depending on experience, personality, and communicationstyle.While the conflicts occur at many levels between many people throughout the film, thecharacters and conflict that touched me the most as the viewer was the conflict between DanielRuiz, the locksmith, and Farhad, the shop owner.
