The Unloved, Part 41: "Crash"

The latest edition of Scout Tafoya’s “The Unloved” video essay series focuses on David Cronenberg’s 1996 film “Crash,” as based on the novel by J.G. Ballard. Controversial since its Cannes premiere, the James Spader and Holly Hunter film about the eroticism of car crashes is framed by Tafoya as “a feature length incantation … urging us to allow each wicked sight the potential to change us.” As this “perfect instrument of upset and provocation” takes viewers on its unforgettable, taboo ride, Tafoya assures us that “If you’re still in your chair, then you’re in Cronenberg’s passenger seat.”
