Based on the equally polarizing 1973 novel ‘Crash’ by English author J.G. Ballard, David Cronenberg’s adaptation caused an uproar when it was released. Praised by (some) critics and widely admonished by others, the film has gained something of a cult audience in the 20 years since its release. In Cronenberg’s distinctly cold and removed style, he tells the story of a TV director who survives a terrible car crash, (James Spader, in a standout performance) only to become immersed in a strange sub-culture of sexual fetishism, specifically having to do with those who become sexually aroused by both staging and participating in very real, and sometimes dangerous, car crashes. Things get interesting when he tries toreplicate the raw, unusual charge of his new prediliction in an attempt to jump start his marital sex life. Also starring Holly Hunter, Elias Koteas, Debroah Kara Unger, Rosanna Arquette.

CRASH (David Cronenberg, 1996 / 100 mins) | After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife.
