[A] necessarily disturbing and equally profound inquiry into human desire, however self-destructive.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
April 4, 2011
For a movie obsessed with the connection between sexual intercourse and car accidents, David Cronenberg's Crash could hardly be more stationary.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
September 1, 2009
With Crash, David Cronenberg drives mainstream cinema over the edge.
September 9, 2008
While the director remains firmly behind the wheel for the first hour or so, he cracks up toward the end with sequences that send the film and the audience into a ditch.
July 30, 2007
Crash is a mutant work of art -- a bracing splash of ice water.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
June 24, 2006
It's a dark, disturbing, languorous movie, as ludicrous, hermetic and repetitive, perhaps, as Ballard's original, but admirably assured and true to itself.
February 9, 2006
Wildly unwatchable, as if someone had made Andy Warhol's Frankenstein without being in on the joke.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5
July 5, 2005
It's the cold survival logic of Darwin, where libertarians leave their past behind as if it were dead.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
October 29, 2003
A stylish, intriguing and typically warped vision that hybridises the imaginations of Ballard and Cronenberg.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 20, 2003
Mr. Cronenberg, for once oddly inhibited by brazen subject matter, has made a meticulously stylized and controlled film that leaves many of its characters' ideas muffled and lacks the true audacity its material demands.

In that re-identification of "otherness," he betrays his awe of humanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
February 5, 2003
One of the most uncomfortable movies I've ever seen.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 5, 2002
Crash is a violently rare exception to the continually careful stride of film, and few films have been made with such a conviction to such inherently controversial material.
October 15, 2002
It may be the best movie you'll never want to see.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 11, 2002
While it is brilliantly crafted on a technical level, Crash is completely devoid of any human emotion, which only serves to distance the viewer farther than he or she already is.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 26, 2002
Disturbing film about the tendency of many modern people to eroticize danger.
April 17, 2002
Cronenberg may feel it's necessary to temper explosive content with conspicuously tame style lest he lose any hope of a popular audience; whatever his motivation, though, I find his recent movies more compelling in conception than execution.
March 24, 2002
Lacking compulsion, Cronenberg's film is just repetition. It may crash, but it doesn't burn.
January 22, 2002
"Crash" doesn't extend beyond its most immediate sensationalism. When the movie does attempt to find a theme, it slams into a brick wall of mumbo-jumbo.
April 8, 2001
To say this movie is sick is too facile. Let's just say it's perverse. Crash is a grotesque film filled with vacuous characters and a destitute theme.
