Director David Cronenberg’s controversial movie about the erotic thrill of automobile accidents still makes an impression. William recalls the reaction to the movie in 1996 and Alexander delves into psychopathology.

Great podcast - I am surprised no one mentioned the brilliant dissonant guitar score by Howard Shore. I am a big fan of the subversive nature of this film, especially for Cronenberg it seemed to be his most risque work of his filmography, just because of the elements of realism in the aftermath of car wrecks. Really cool to hear it discussed with respect and admiration. Cheers!
