Crash - Lilith Likes to Watch Famous February

Title: Crash Year: 1996 Starring: James Spader, Deborah Kara Unger, Holly Hunter, Elias Koteas Director: David Cronenberg Synopsis: After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife. - Via Lilith's Notes: Often parodied, never duplicated. "It’s something we are all intimately involved in. The reshaping of the human body by modern technology." Well, my fellows, Famous February is now coming to a close, and I hope you enjoyed this foray into glitzy, glistening celebrity skin. I know I did.

"You like watching, don't you?" Sometimes when I write these reviews, and everytime I make a social media post about them, I consult with the little devil on my shoulder. I like to be just a little bit of a smart-ass, because it’s my goal to entertain you with these reviews. If I can’t be insightful, I can at least be amusing, right?

I say that because he seems to really be a fan of that back-bending pose from

He is the best character. "Black it out." Yeah, I know. I also have no idea how, on this porn and erotica review site, I ended up writing a review for a Nic Cage and Judge Reinhold movie, but here we are. Zandalee is the story of a woman named Zandalee (played by Erika Anderson) who is unhappily married to Thierry (Played by Judge Reinhold) a rich southern boy. She is physically and emotionally unfulfilled and lives out a life of doldrums. To alleviate her boredom, she goes out clubbing with a friend, gets innocently frisky with another person, the
