      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Narratively unwieldy and tonally jumbled, Maps to the Stars still has enough bite to satisfy David Cronenberg fans in need of a coolly acidic fix. Read critic reviews

        A disenchanting look at the ugly side of Hollywood, the vanities and arrogance of the rich and famous. That's confusing at first, engaging in the middle part and down right gross in the end when it all comes down to death, murder, suicide and misery. Moore's performance is outstanding, the rest of the cast is great too, but when every character turns out to be a frikkin lunatic, it's hard to hold on to something. Of course that's exactly what Cronenberg intended.

        Cronenberg's sensibilities improve upon what could easily have been more obvious satirical elements. Moore's performance is impressive, a lot of actor's have made themselves look physically ugly but few would be willing to go as far emotionally as she does here.

        Rams a knife into the heart of Hollywood, then twists it. Mesmerising

        I don't understand the intent of satire if not to criticize and expose the stupidity of others with the inflicted idea of how to correct such stupidity. I'm not saying everyone who pokes fun of something has to have a solution for how it shouldn't be funny, but while director David Cronenberg's latest, Maps to the Stars, is most definitely intended to be satire it certainly has no intention of being funny and with that one would expect it to have something more to say than the comments it hands out. If you've been watching movies for any amount of time you will come to realize the one thing Hollywood loves more than money is itself and so the indie kings, the rebellious filmmakers and those who generally defy the system consistently mock it for never allowing them the artistic expression to do as they please. To this point, I'm not one who is overly-keen on Cronenberg's work (though I admittedly haven't seen much) and so before you read any further know there is a bit of a grudge present because despite hearing promising things from the time I really began investing critical thinking in films (A History of Violence) I have come to be slightly disappointed with the results of what has been praised. Again, his last couple efforts (Cosmopolis and A Dangerous Method) have admittedly not been his most well-received, but while I knew I was experiencing something different with both Violence and Eastern Promises I didn't necessarily dig what I was seeing either. Maybe I didn't "get" what Cronenberg was going for, it's easy to dismiss it as such, but in giving a valid effort to want to like every film I watch I typically come away with something whether I feel a movie is good or bad, but the majority of the time I walk away from a Cronenberg picture I simply feel frustrated. I know there is plenty more to see between what I've heard about Scanners and The Fly, but why should I feel intrigued when the other products this company has produced haven't been satisfactory? Maps to the Stars is no different in that it features a singular style and voice, but more disappointing here is the fact we've seen this kind of satire before and so this typically unique perspective doesn't even feel fresh. read the whole review at www.reviewsfromabed.net
