Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Cronenberg's Crash (1996) brought on a storm of controversy when it was first screened and remains controversial today. Though some members of the jury disassociate themselves from the film, it won a Special Jury Prize at Cannes. A cool, controlled, formal film and a brilliant exposé of modern pathologies, it has almost none of the violence and explicit sexual content of the J.G. Ballard novel from which it is adapted.

In this book, which includes an exclusive and revealing new interview with Ballard, Iain Sinclair explores the uncanny temporal loop that connects film and novel. If Cronenberg "adapted" Crash, he also absorbed it and made it into something new.

Synopsis:

In this book, which includes a new interview with Ballard who wrote the book on which the film was based, Sinclair explores the temporal loop which connects film and novel, and asks questions such as to what extent is Crash a premonition of some of the more remarkable media events of recent times. In the BFI MODERN CLASSICS series.
