Critic Reviews of "Crash (1996)"Entertainment WeeklyApril 04, 2011
For a movie obsessed with the connection between sexual intercourse and car accidents, David Cronenberg's Crash could hardly be more stationary.VarietySeptember 09, 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.Time OutJune 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.New York TimesMay 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.Washington PostJanuary 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.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 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."Slant MagazineNovember 12, 2012
[A] necessarily disturbing and equally profound inquiry into human desire, however self-destructive.City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulSeptember 01, 2009
With Crash, David Cronenberg drives mainstream cinema over the edge.eFilmCritic.comJuly 30, 2007
Crash is a mutant work of art -- a bracing splash of ice water.F5 (Wichita, KS)February 09, 2006
Wildly unwatchable, as if someone had made Andy Warhol's Frankenstein without being in on the joke.Slant MagazineJuly 05, 2005
It's the cold survival logic of Darwin, where libertarians leave their past behind as if it were dead.Film4October 29, 2003
A stylish, intriguing and typically warped vision that hybridises the imaginations of Ballard and Cronenberg.
