Love in the dying moments of the twentieth century.
Summary: Based on the 1973 novel by J.
G. Ballard. James and Catherine Ballard are a married
couple whose sex life has been reduced to recounting
tales of mutual infidelity to turn each other on.
One night, James causes a head-on collision with a
car carrying Dr. Helen Remington, killing her husband
and severely injuring her and himself. Subsequent
encounters with each other find that they are oddly
sexually aroused by the danger of car accidents and
potential accidents, and, with Catherine, soon fall
in with a cult of car crash fetishists. The group
is led by Vaughan, a former scientist twisted by his
own disfigurement in an accident, and, as a result,
a man obsessed with car crashes as a liberation of
sexual energy. Vaughan inducts the Ballards and Dr.
Remington into his surreal world of sex in the back
seats of cars, re-enactments of famous car crashes
(i.e. James Dean and Jayne Mansfield), viewing photos
of accident victims and screenings of collision videos
as pornography, and fender benders as mating rituals.
is the orgasm for the life. Ballard's cult novel was
directed by the 'cult master' david cronenberg.it
