    Flirting With Disaster - With Crash, David Cronenberg drives mainstream cinema over the edge.

    It's a built-in need that we rehearse the difficult things of life, so they don't come as a complete surprise and don't overwhelm us. --David Cronenberg Confession: I was nervous about seeing Crash, as I've been before all of David Cronenberg's film...

    J.G. Ballard: bard of the autoerotic

    No film could ever hope to wholly capture the virtuosic and polymorphous perversity of J.G. Ballard's Crash, and that's probably a good thing. Ballard's text is literally a catalog of the most malignant sort of eroticism, and spares nothing in the w...
