The scientist, along with a crash victim he has recently befriended, sets about performing a series of sexual acts in a variety of motor vehicles, either with other crash victims or with prostitutes whom they contort into the shape of trapped corpses. Ultimately, the scientist craves a suicidal union of blood, semen, and engine coolant, a union with which he becomes dangerously obsessed.
Plot: After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife.

I don’t have a whole lot of experience with David Cronenberg’s films and this is the first of his I’ve watched in a long time. Pretty obvious with the symbolism he was after but this isn’t something I particularly engaged with despite the committed performances from the cast, although Elias Koteas was creepy good. No real plot with this one and by the end, while a unique movie for sure, not really sure I have much desire to watch again (at least anytime soon). **3.0/5**
One thing has to be said in my fellow Canadian David Cronenberg’s favour–At least for the first 25-or-so years of his filmmaking career, he has always been one of the most surprising and brilliant minds of ‘body-related horror’, and from every conceivable angle. What other mind–out of 7 billion possibilities–could have come up with this, the combining of erotic pleasure with car crashing? He sure must have been an interesting catch in his early dating years, for the adventurous women out there…
The Orgasm of Burning Rubber.
“How many orgasms per mile can you get ?” This is one of the catching tag lines of the movie “Crash”. Again Cronenberg delivers a dive into human psychic, the world of dark obsession, and twisted fantasy’s.
A sexually frustrated couple starts experimenting with the outlines of anonymous sex. It is the husband James Ballard (James Spader) who gets into a car crash with Dr. Ellen Remington (Holly Hunter) and her husband. They crash frontally and both Ballard and Remington are seriously injured. Remington’s husband dies while being launched from his seat through his own windshield into Ballards. Ballard ends up in the hospital, traumatized, trying to recover from his injuries. He gets into deeper contact with Helen Remington. Their mutual Crash-victim status brings them closer together, ultimately delivering them into the sump-oil-soaked world of the pathological Vaughan (Elias Koteas). Renegade scientist and leader of a strange subterranean group, Vaughan is only able to achieve sexual release by crashing into people on the motorways surrounding Heathrow airport. Getting sucked into his world, Ballard becomes obsessed with car crashes, and dives into the illegal world of “thrill seeking” and raw and hard (but mostly cold) sex.
To be quiet honest “Crash” is a very underestimated picture. First of all there are a serious amount of people who thought that the subject was laughable, and not to be taken serious, for how could you take something like this serious ?
After crashing your car and being injured, having sex with the victim of a car-crash ?
Apart from the post-traumatic stress that can appear after such an incident it also triggers a lot of adrenaline, which is almost a self produced drug. Cronenberg cuts a subject which is still very much of a taboo, the “thrill seeking taboo”. You got a lot of so called thrill seekers now these days, which can result into ghost riding on the freeway, climbing on buildings without security etc. All in all the thrill seek element isn’t that original.
This is where Cronenberg has looked for a thrill that rushes into a perverse sexual outburst. After the shock of crashing into a car, the adrenaline, the rush of the experience becomes so real, you feel so alive that you need to let it all out, which comes into the act of “making love”. Cronenberg is trying to paint the audience a picture of an event like this.
Based on J.G. Ballards novel “Crash” which was quiet detached and cold, the director follows in style with the dark freeways of Canada, showing that even in your car you are not always save, and how a car can become the ultimate “drive” for pleasure. The problem with this film (like many others) is that it is so far out there that you either hate it or love it. The pacing is rather slow in the beginning and its hard to get into, if you don’t understand the psychology that lies underneath the dialog. The movie has a solid script but the subject and material is not accessible for everybody. James Spader who often (he almost could be a stereotype) plays sexual frustrated protagonists (“Sex,Lies,and Videotapes”, “Secretary”, “Speaking of Sex”) delivers a terrific performance here. His distant and alienated acting fits perfectly into the dark en and sensual story, and doesn’t come as a insincere or “over the top”. Some people felt that Koteas and Hunter performances where a little flat, but they have just the balance between low key and an over the top performance (Koteas more than Hunter). You got to keep in mind that these people are already deranged from the beginning. What you see is simply a drop falling into bucket that is overflowing.
The use of light and shadow is very subtle and excellently done by cinematographer Peter Suschitzky. He really knows how to pull you into a certain world, that LOOKS like ours but feels very different. In any case I can recommend the movie if you want to watch something different. A lot of people will not understand the weight this film carries, and therefore this movie will be underrated, or simply will be put aside as boring or unrealistic. THIS IS A MISTAKE,… don’t put it away, watch it, and feel the awkwardness. The result ?
“Humans really are quiet weird creatures…”
This one leaves me ALMOST speechless
My my my, where to begin… Lets just say the only reason I would ever watch this movie is because I am a fan of James Spaders’ work. Of course I wasn’t at all disappointed with James’ performance. His was one very difficult role & he pulled it off flawlessly. I really don’t know how he did it. To me the story is very unrealistic. I mean I hope & pray that there aren’t people out there that get off on car crashes. God help us all if they do. As bad as I feel about this film I also must give it some praise. It’s original, it’s entertaining, & it’s shocking. I think my jaw just kept dropping further & further as I watched this movie. All in all I am not sorry that I watched “Crash”.
