No when I saw this in 1996, I didn’t feel I was ready. I revisited this film later, and understood what it said about sex and technology. This is David Cronenberg’s second best film after Videodrome that explores his pet themes so successfully. This benefits from the lack of restrictions the rating allowed (one of the few films that merit the NC-17) about the thin line between sex, life and death. These characters are mentally unstable, and the coldness of their surroundness is a metaphor for the sterility of normal life. There is a need among some people of an extra component to get their rocks of. Be it way of pornography, sensory overload, or violence. It’s not entertainment, and a bit alien, but it’s sexy in a weird way. Crash is an interesting movie about the transgression of sex and technology, and the need for an environment by which to experience it with.
