Crash 4K

Crash – the Crash about car crash sex, not the Crash about racism – is one of David Cronenberg‘s most fascinating films.

Weirdest David Cronenberg films

David Cronenberg‘s new film Maps to the Stars is in theaters and on VOD, and every time a new film arrives from the director I end up going back through his years of prior work to find new connections and ideas.
