"The car crash is a fertilizing rather than a destructive event."

An infamous 1973 novel by J.G. Ballard, Crash became the basis for a just as infamous 1996 film by David Cronenberg. It tells the tale of one James Ballard, a film producer and his wife Catherine. One day, he gets into a fatal car accident. He then meets the survivor of the other car, Helen, and discovers an underground subculture devoted to staging car crashes as a sexual fetish. It gets weirder from there. The film stars James Spader, Holly Hunter, Elias Koteas, Deborah Kara Unger, and Rosanna Arquette.

In no ways, shape or form to be mistaken for the 2005 Oscar winner.
