Plot – Spoilers:
James Ballard is in the movie business as well as an open and sexually jaded marriage with wife Catherine. An orgasm appears to have gotten elusive to both and they drift through their days titillating each other with tales of their extra marital indiscretions.

One night, James crashes his car killing the driver of an oncoming car whose co-passenger, Helen survives. James notices certain changes in his outlook post the accident and when Helen encourages him into sexual acts in cars, he begins to develop a paraphilia (symphorophilia) for accidents and car wrecks. This kink is fueled by a cult-like character Vaughan who has some strange ideas that push all known boundaries of sexual experimentation. Catherine becomes a part of their fetish as things begin to escalate.

Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on
You do something to me that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha
Making love with each other, ah ha
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

“Maybe the next one.” Essentially the replacement of partners with car crash monogamy. J.G Ballard’s books were always unique imo, just a shame too few have been made into films. As a J.G Ballard fan I’m probably biased but for me this film scores 4 / 5 broken legs.

I didn’t like the ending . . . She should have died in that crash and then he has sex with her body in the grass beside the road. Other than that it was OK.

Crash was writian by J G Ballard . His first autobiographical boo kwas made into the film Empire of the sun .His second autobigraphical book The Kindness of Woman is one of my favourite books .

David Cronenberg has made a number of films in the 70s and 80s, including ”Scanners”, ”Shivers” and ”Rabid” among many others which I have seen over the years. Medical horror films were his forte and he didnt shy away from controversial subjects with lots of gore and sex. My favorite subjects, btw. ”Crash” was ok but it didnt grab me like his earliest movies. I think he went a bit soft as he got older. Still worth a watch tho.

Great, I really miss this movie, and I don’t know how many years passed since the last time that I watched it. I love this movie when I was an adolescent and I love it now. There isn’t just one form to love. But I strongly believe that paraphilias are ok if all participants agree with what could happen.

Just to say a huge thank you to whoever chooses/ correlates the films for this site.I only discovered you yesterday when looking for that GG Allin documentary ,which was an eye opener .lol But you have some incredible stuff here,I’ m definitely here for European/ world cinema and classic Cronenberg etc as opposed to the full out guts and gore some of the weirdos living in their mum’s s basement aged 35 seen to enjoy..but you have a nice taste in art house cinema too…We are back in full lockdown where I.live in northern England & this site is a life saved from the boredom of lockdown alone ! Thank you xx

Hang on a minute..Nimrod ?is suggesting children are reading / watching Crash by the great JG Ballard in the classroom as a way of learning about diversity?WHY couldn’t I have gone to a school like that in the 70′ s ..sounds fucking great!!
I actually got a good thwacking with a wooden ruler across my knuckles when I was 10 yrs for reading Iain McKewen ‘ First Love last rights ‘ & ‘ Inbetween the Sheets’ by the teacher and was called a ‘ subversive’.. Well 43 yrs later she got that bit right?

Disgusting . I can’t believe that this movie is recommended for school children to learn about diversity! Don’t get me wrong, diversity and accepting all the faggots and freaks is super important and all, but this is too far I tell ya!
