Crash Reviews

For a movie obsessed with the connection between sexual intercourse and car accidents, David Cronenberg's Crash could hardly be more stationary.
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.

Wildly unwatchable, as if someone had made Andy Warhol's Frankenstein without being in on the joke.

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.

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.

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.

Lacking compulsion, Cronenberg's film is just repetition. It may crash, but it doesn't burn.

"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.

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.
February 14, 2001
So far from being involving or compelling, so intentionally disconnected from any kind of recognizable emotion, that by comparison David Lynch's removed "Lost Highway" plays like "Lassie Come Home."

[A] snoozer.

An extremely well made but utterly preposterous show. It is so far out that it is off of any scale you can imagine.

[There] are movies which are utterly without value, movies that may even offend your sensibilities. For me, Crash was just this kind of film.

David Cronenberg's examination of automobile-eroticism is a failed experiment.
