Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival for originality, daring and audacity, Crash is director David Cronenberg’s controversial adaptation of writer J.G. Ballard’s hugely transgressive 1973 novel. James Ballard (James Spader), a film producer whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington (Holly Hunter), is drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism. Technology and sexuality meet in a head-on collision.
