    Thank you for the link to that most enjoyable article about Cronenberg’s Crash. My son was once assigned to watch the “other” Crash film for a college course, but somehow managed to see Cronenberg’s instead. I love to imagine how lost he was during the class discussion!

    One other notable aspect of Cronenberg’s film is its soundtrack (by Howard Shore), which seems to have been inspired by Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca’s guitar symphonies. The soundtrack could could easily be mistaken for an instrumental recording by Sonic Youth.
