David Cronenberg’s Crash (1996), based on JG Ballard’s 1973 novel of the same name, tells the story of a group of people who take sexual pleasure from car crashes. The film generated considerable controversy on its release. Roger Ebert said ‘The result is challenging, courageous and original’. Mark Kermode described Crash as ‘pretty much perfect’. A rare cinema screening for this unsettling classic.

Thanks to eOne, David Cronenberg and Jeremy Thomas for making this screening possible.

Part of Self Selects – Will Self’s Future Cities Cinema.

To go alongside his visit to Bristol, his lecture on JG Ballard and Future Cities, and the special preview of High Rise, Will Self has chosen films he admires about Ballard and cities in general.
