The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
ONTARIO, Canada | 100 minutes | 1996
After a car crash, James Ballard discovers he has a fetish rooted in crumpled cars and bodies. The dented sides of cars become the womb for disturbing, venomous mutants who, from one vehicle to the next, one body to the next, eroticize bruises, scars, pegs and prostheses. The strange beauty of maimed bodies, a heady mix of the smells of sex, blood and gas, all with a captivating soundtrack by Howard Shore: Crash is a quest for an ever-postponed orgasm. It’s a film that leaves no taboo intact as it caresses us and probes our embrace of erogenous vibration. The master of psychological horror presents his diamond in the rough: a sublime, gothic, infinitely melancholy film.BRAND NEW RESTORED VERSIONQ&A with filmmaker JDAVID CRONENBERG on October 10th"Everybody's a mad scientist, and life is their lab." David Cronenberg"Arguably the closest commercial Western cinema has come to Oshima's Ai No Corrida ..." Time Out«Rarement un film a autant ouvert sur le dedans par le simple frôlement du dehors, rarement un cinéaste a su construire une approche aussi frontale du corps et de la sexualité » Cahiers du cinéma« ... inconfortable et audacieux ... le noyau dur de la vision de Cronenberg. » Les Inrockuptibles
