Crash – Cinema Junkies
There are people who has a feet-fetish, others for hairy girls, or bondage, but what David Cronenberg wanted to tell in Crash was about a group of people who arouse in car accidents and their consequences, twisted metal, scars…
Crash is a 1996 british-canadian film written and directed by Cronenberg himself and based on the novel by JG Ballard, published in 1973. It tells us the story of James Ballard and his wife Catherine, a marriage with an open relationship. between them, sex is boring but they get excited when they tell each other their sexual experiences with other people.
One day, James is coming back from work and he has an car accident in which he gets badly injured but the other driver dies. There he meets Dr. Helen Remington, wife of the deceased. Through her, he will meet and know Vaughan, a wird man obsessed with taking pictures of accidents, wounds and corpses.
James will find his fetish for crashes and accident wounds and will find sexual pleasure with her wife through this. They enter then in a cul-de-sac of extreme experiences, more and more extreme in order to get aroused. SPOILER For example, in one scene, James fucks a woman with an orthopedic devise in her legs. The girl has a huge scar in one of her legs and James fucks her right away.
Vaughan goes further and commits suicide crashing against a bus. James and Catherine seek that kind of climax, forcing an accident in which Catherine almost dies. James, seeing her wive covered with wounds next to their crashed car cannot control himself and fucks her, telling her that they have to push further, suggesting a joint suicide.
The film has a lot of sex scenes, probably a 70% of the film is about sex, explicit or suggested. Cronenberg manages to produce some really exciting scenes, sucha as the one in the car wash, where James drives through the tunnel while Vaughan fucks Catherine and masturbates her and her fluids remain on the backseat, while James gets aroused throug the mirror.
There is a moment in which James and Vaughan fuck excited by the car scrapping site and their wounds and scars. Dr Helen Remington has a lesbian scene with the girl with the orthopedic leg. SPOILER ENDS
The film is starred by James Spader (Stargate), the gorgeous Deborah Kara Unger (Silent Hill), Elias Coteas (Ninja Turtles) or Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction). Although the film was nominated for the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, it only got the jury’s prize, because the film received mixed reviews. SOme people spoke of a work of art while others criticised the film harshly. It was an expected film but it deceived a lot of Cronenberg fans. Anyway, Cronenberg’s Crash, not to be confused with Sandra Bullock’s, is an exciting film that looks for perversion, fetishism and voyeurism.
