David Cronenberg / CA, 1996
Anyone tired of humdrum sex will enjoy Crash, Cronenberg’s adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s eponymous novel. The descent into the shadowy world of sexual fetishes, adultery and battered car wrecks has a surreal quality.
The erotica collection of Eye Filmmuseum includes no fewer than a thousand titles, but they are rarely taken off the shelf. Cinema Erotica brushes aside cinematic decorum to present an ode to lust featuring historical curios, films by contemporary artists, talks and musical performances.
