DIRECTOR: DAVID CRONENBERG
CAST: JAMES SPADER, HOLLY HUNTER, ROSANNA ARQUETTE
“A masterful minimalist adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1973 neo-futurist novel about sex and car crashes,” per critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, Cronenberg’s Crash is a concert of flesh and steel, a cautionary tale of machine age eroticism that doubles as an enticing invitation, with Spader as a film producer who, after a head-on smash-up, finds himself drawn into an underground society of men and women who fetishize auto collisions. The movie that gives a whole new meaning to “sex drive.”
