Movie Review: Crash

So I saw David Cronenberg's Crash for the first time last night. It came out over 10 years ago, and if I remember correctly it created quite a stir for seemingly glorifying sexually deviant behavior. (If that isn't a selling point for a movie, I don't know what is!) We'll get to that in a second.

One thing I've always admired about Cronenberg is how unflinching he is about exploring sensuality and more specifically, intense modification or destruction of the most intimate parts of the human body. Of all the images and themes that squick people, he will not only go there, he will examine them under a microscope. Watching a Cronenberg film is almost like accepting a dare...
