Harris’ character is an example of police officers’ potential for corruption.

Field of Dreams is just that, a field that fulfills the dreams of the owner. Field of Dreams, directed by Phil Alden Robinson, is about a farmer from Iowa, Ray, who is out in his field of corn one night and hears a whispering voice call out to him. No one in his family is able to hear the voice, but him. At first he believes he is going crazy until he hears it repeatedly and signs were given to him on the task that needed to be completed.

The most powerful scene in the movie “Crash” is the scene where a black male and female couple is driving a car that looks like the same one that has been stolen in the movie but it is not a stolen car because the license plate is different. Matt Dillon, who is a white racist police officer pulls the couple over and persuaded them to get out of the car and he pats them both down, while he was patting the women down he molested her in the presence of her husband and the husband could not bear to see what he was doing to his wife, although he cannot put a halt or stop the cop because he will be accused of assaulting a police officer, he has think about his standards within society. For example, although the police officer is committing a crime, the husband cannot have to take in consideration that if he does anything to the officer or reacted in a very malicious way, he would not only be accused of assaulting the police but he will also be a color guy assaulting an officer. Moreover, since there are two different races it will be some worse authorities in the conflict. To sum up, the scene is mostly about how a couple was mistreated by the racist officer because of their race and the husband has to rethink what will happen to him if he risks his life for his wife.
