The Conversations #13: Crash

The latest installment of the Conversations has now been posted at The House Next Door. In this piece, Jason Bellamy and I turn our attention to David Cronenberg's 1996 adaptation of J.G. Ballard's Crash. We talk about the film's relationship to the novel, the explicit sex, the romance of the car crash, and whether or not this film actually has any point or not. We're about as divided on this film as two people can be, so it's a pretty lively debate, and we hope that others who feel equally strongly about this film, one way or the other, will be joining in. As always, our dialogue is just the start of the conversation.

And yes, I know I skipped #12 in numbering these pieces. I won't say anymore just yet, but it's not a mistake. More later this year...

In the meantime, check out the Crash conversation, and join in with your own comments.
