It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

Sex and Car Crashes.

Crash (Cronenberg, 1996)

Janet Maslin was right when she described Cronenberg's 1996 masterpiece as sex and car crashes. But it truly is that and so much more. Crash is film with absolutely no exciting elements but one that is also one of the best thrillers of the 90s. It examines the fetishization of technology and how that leads to the fetishization of death. The film is truly made by the brilliance of Cronenberg's script and his mercurial preciseness with his camera. At all times Cronenberg lets the film unfold in his rhythms.

It is rare that a film can leave you feeling violated and thrilled without almost anything occurring. Crash is a massively underappreciated film.
