Here’s what Guy Lodge (from Hitfix) had to say about it...
“Maps to the Stars”
Director: David Cronenberg
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Carrie Fisher, Olivia Williams
Expected debut: Cannes
Why: David Cronenberg is one of my favorite working filmmakers, so a new film of his is not never not gong to be on a list like this for me. But I don’t mind admitting that he’s tested my patience of late: “A Dangerous Method” was elegant but insufficiently dangerous, while “Cosmopolis,’ though well suited to his kinky side, was too bound to its source novel to soar. Will a Hollywood satire bring back his bite? The premise sounds promisingly silly. Cusack’s a psychotherapist and parent of a drug-addicted child star. Wasikowska is his pyromaniac daughter, who befriends Pattinson’s limo driver and wannabe actor. Moore is a star remaking one of her mother’s films as she’s literally haunted by the old woman, and so on and so forth. This could all go way out of control, but that’s kind of what we want, right?
