Crash

  • Dir: David Cronenberg

  • Canada/UK, 1996, English, 100mins, DCP, Category III

  • Cast: James Spader, Holly Hunter, Deborah Kara Unger, Rosanna Arquette

Following a car crash in which his leg is injured, a film producer falls in with a cult that fetishises car accidents, eventually bringing his wife along in an attempt to revive their flagging sexual relationship. An escalation of eroticism to the immaterial, Cronenberg pushes the boundary of sensations and confuses the notion by utilising erotic means for unerotic purposes. Controversial from the moment it received the Special Jury Prize at Cannes, this hypnotic adaptation of J. G. Ballard’s novel remains provocative as it is captivating.
