With Crash, David Cronenberg drives mainstream cinema over the edge. Full Review
City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
Sep 1, 2009
Rating: 4/4 -- [A] necessarily disturbing and equally profound inquiry into human desire, however self-destructive. Full Review
Slant Magazine
Nov 12, 2012
Rating: 1.5/5 -- So far from being involving or compelling, so intentionally disconnected from any kind of recognizable emotion, that by comparison David Lynch's removed "Lost Highway" plays like "Lassie Come Home." Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Feb 14, 2001
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Mr. Cronenberg, for once oddly inhibited by brazen subject matter, has made a meticulously stylized and controlled film that leaves many of its characters' ideas muffled and lacks the true audacity its material demands.
New York Times
May 20, 2003
Rating: 10/10 -- Wreckage, physical scarring, sexual encounters heightened by the proximity to danger-these are all esteemed. [Cronenberg made] a stunningly beautiful film, one of perversely satisfying passion... keenly imaginative and darkly satisfying. Full Review
Mar 15, 2018
It's a dark, disturbing, languorous movie, as ludicrous, hermetic and repetitive, perhaps, as Ballard's original, but admirably assured and true to itself. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- It's the cold survival logic of Darwin, where libertarians leave their past behind as if it were dead. Full Review

Description by

James Spader stars as James Ballard, a bored film director who explores new realms after a near-fatal accident introduces him to a world of sexually obsessed car crash enthusiasts. Unsatisfied by his marriage, Ballard joins Dr. Helen Remington (Holly Hunter) and begins to explore the eroticism of the car and the sexual violence of auto accidents. His quest eventually leads him to Vaughan (Elias Koteas), a renegade scientist overcome by the erotic power of the crash.
