Summary
"David Cronenberg's Crash (1996) brought down a storm of controversy and opprobrium when it was first screened in London. And yet it's a cool, controlled, formal film, unsensational, more analytic than titillating, a brilliant expose of modern pathologies. It has almost none of the violence and explicit sexual content of the J.G. Ballard novel from which it is adapted. What is the relationship between Cronenberg's film and Ballard's book? And, further back, what is the relationship between Ballard himself and the character 'James Ballard' in Crash?" "In this book, which includes an exclusive and revealing interview with Ballard, Iain Sinclair explores the uncanny temporal loop which connects film and novel."--Jacket.
