Movie Night - Crash is a 1996 British-Canadian psychological thriller film written and directed by David Cronenberg.
It tells the story of a group of people who take sexual pleasure from car crashes. The film stars James Spader, Deborah Kara Unger, Elias Koteas, Holly Hunter, and Rosanna Arquette.
Crash generated considerable controversy and opened to highly divergent reactions from critics. While some praised the film for its daring premise and originality, others criticized its combination of graphic sexuality with violence.
