CRASH
1996, Fine Line, 100 min, Canada/UK, Dir: David Cronenberg

Controversy positively mushroomed in the wake of director David Cronenberg’s savagely candid NC-17 adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s infamous 1973 novel. After suffering a catastrophic accident, James Ballard (James Spader) suddenly finds himself sexually aroused by car crashes, something that introduces him to a group of like-minded accident victims that includes Holly Hunter and Rosanna Arquette. But Vaughan (Elias Koteas), their defacto leader and the most-addicted to the phenomenon of flesh merging with metal, pushes the envelope way beyond near death experiences. With Deborah Kara Unger.

SPIDER
2002, Sony Pictures Classics, 98 min, Canada/UK/France, Dir: David Cronenberg

Dennis Cleg (a masterful Ralph Fiennes) has just been released from the psychiatric ward and has been assigned to live in a halfway house. A conflicted and deeply troubled soul searching for answers in his past, he receives little care and attention and is left alone with his own thoughts - which center around his tragic childhood and the events that landed him in the hospital in the first place. Miranda Richardson, Gabriel Byrne and Lynn Redgrave costar in this riveting psychological thriller.
