Wreckage, physical scarring, sexual encounters heightened by the proximity to danger-these are all esteemed. [Cronenberg made] a stunningly beautiful film, one of perversely satisfying passion... keenly imaginative and darkly satisfying.

[A] necessarily disturbing and equally profound inquiry into human desire, however self-destructive.

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

Crash is a mutant work of art -- a bracing splash of ice water.
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.

It's the cold survival logic of Darwin, where libertarians leave their past behind as if it were dead.
October 29, 2003
A stylish, intriguing and typically warped vision that hybridises the imaginations of Ballard and Cronenberg.

In that re-identification of "otherness," he betrays his awe of humanity.
February 5, 2003
One of the most uncomfortable movies I've ever seen.

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.

It may be the best movie you'll never want to see.

Disturbing film about the tendency of many modern people to eroticize danger.

It's about the human mind, about the way we grow enslaved by the particular things that turn us on, and forgive ourselves our trespasses.

Its matter-of-fact tone and concentration on nuance of character in frank sex scenes renders it moving and involving rather than lurid and gratuitous.
