  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Crash

    Few directors would even dare touch a film about people that get aroused by seeing car crashes. One of them are David Cronenberg who can made sexy art out of even the worst tissue scars. In a way he is perfect for the film as he has already made films about cars before and strange sexual behavior. This is not a movie for everyone, but I found myself absorbed by the acting, beautiful cinematography and the sex.

  2. Harriehhh's rating of the film Crash

    Dumb and tasteless are a few of my most immediate thoughts. Perhaps it just hasn’t aged well. That said, some of the quote unquote action scenes were pretty intense, and the fetishisation of injury detail was suitably repulsive for a Cronenberg film.

  3. caddie's rating of the film Crash

    Have you ever felt a death-like sensation when coming (ejaculating)? 'Crash' combines the perverted nature of the original sin – human sexuality – with capitalist alienation. And oh boy, well he does. Sex is mechanic, dangerous and penetrative just as a car crash is.

  4. Philippe Lajède's rating of the film Crash

    (5+) A Freudian psychology handbook [compare with the final part of chapter n. 4 in "Jenseits des Lustprinzips" (1920), for example].

  5. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Crash

    Captures the scientific languor of the novel, but not its hyper-realisation of ergonomics. I remember for a week after first reading the book back in sixth form I couldn't help but see the build environment and its objects as moulded around the average Teutonic human form and how limiting and warping that was upon both moral and aesthetic sensibilities. Cronenberg more purely interested in passionless pathology.

  6. Stefano Campagna's rating of the film Crash

  7. Louis Robert's rating of the film Crash

    Ah la quête insatiable de ressentir des émotions! Ici on pousse ce concept à sa limite avec un weird fétiche sexuel sur les accidents de voiture. J'ai comme une envie d'avoir un crash tout à coup.

  8. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Crash

    Fantastic mood and aesthetics but may have benefited from a plot

  9. ñiñiñi's rating of the film Crash

    ahora me calientan los choques

  10. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Crash

  11. Pill Yun's rating of the film Crash

    Here's the prophecy : the cars must be crashed, the cracks must be revealed, and everyone must be fucked. Shot-by-shot structures are cryptic and intact. The camera angles, slow travelings, juxtapositions... Just crazy.

  12. El Biffo's rating of the film Crash

    Terrifying to imagine what the insurance premiums must be like for the people in this story!

  13. Z's rating of the film Crash

    Has the same fetishistic, focused, intense repetition as the novel. Spader's Ballard stumbles upon a perverse subculture that subsumes and ultimately comes to define his sexuality. Cronenberg comprehends the cold, scaly, sexual inquiry that Ballard is engaged in. A cinematic provacateur with a clinical eye for detail takes on a writer who is part fantasist, part prophet. Pleasure, pain and sexualized machine merge.

  14. unearthly_red's rating of the film Crash

    watching this is like being transfixed while doing something that you know is wrong but can't stop. in the words of Roger Ebert, i admired it but i can't say i "liked" it.

  15. Leif Erikson's rating of the film Crash

    The car crash is a fertilizing rather than a destructive event.

  16. Yumi Kaioh's rating of the film Crash

  17. FISCHER's rating of the film Crash

    Déjà le roman d'anticipation de J.G. Ballard irradiait de tous ses mots et ses douleurs cette expérience ultime de la jouissance extatique et funèbre avec un brio certain et une rare conviction. David Cronenberg la prolonge et la complémentarise visuellement, avec une feutrée et luisante efficacité. www.cinefiches.com

  19. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Crash

    According to André Bazin and Jacques Rivette, there are two subjects in cinema that should only be approached in fear and shivering, in which its representation is automatically obscene: sex, and death. In Crash, David Cronenberg superimposes the beautiful and the macabre, pushing both of them into their tragic climax. It is his most disturbing film - which says a lot - but also his best directed.

    Taking my scratched up VW Polo for a ride right now. Let me know if I have to pick you up.

  22. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Crash

    Ehh....just not much else going on other than high amount of sex in it. Gets redundant
