Our take

A mysterious object from David Cronenberg, this adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s scandalous novel charts the deepest chasms of human desire. One of the great films of the ’90s, Crash is a transgressive, psychopathological reckoning with sex, death, and the anesthetizing effects of parasitic connection.
