Crash ★★★★★

Somehow more transgressive than I expected from a David Cronenberg adaptation of a J.G. Ballard novel, which says less about my expectations and more about the fact that, oh man, this movie GOES there. Perhaps the most elemental, upsetting representation of Cronenberg's body horror, more detached than ever. Howard Shore's soundtrack work is, as always, top notch, but his gorgeous guitar pieces here prove him to be one of the most versatile scoresmiths in the biz. Watching this makes me hope I'll be able to make the argument that Fast Company is body horror.
