The Conversations: Crash (1996)

The Conversations series moves into its second year today at The House Next Door. Ed Howard and I start off 2010 by leaping back to 1996 to discuss David Cronenberg's controversial Crash - not to be confused with Paul Haggis' controversial Crash from 2004. Much of the conversation is spent trying to figure out what the film is attempting to do and how it is and isn't successful in meeting those aims. Ed and I toss around a few theories, but with a film like this I'm sure there are many more we didn't consider. So, please, head on over to The House Next Door and join the conversation!
