    This is Cronenerg's worst film along with M Butterfly. So empty and shallow, David should be ashamed of himself.The only people I would recomend this film to is insomniacs. This film may cure them.

    Pretentious. Combine a controversial topic with somewhat of a message, and everyone thinks you've created the next Citizen Kane. Dull throughout, and not worth waiting for the message.

    An undoubtedly important film but it's hard to care about characters defined only by their controversial sexual preferences. It is easy to become disengaged with the film and that says a lot, given the subject matter

  1. Compared with the novel, the movie might seem predictable. But compared with other movies, it stands alone.

    Crash has a couple of concepts which are, admittedly, fascinating and original, but not a whole lot more.

    The astonishing thing, however, is how pleasantly hypnotic the film is -- despite the fact that its subject is confined to peculiarly gruesome sex.
