Julianne Moore finds her Zen... for now. We will all agree, after watching David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, that Julianne Moore is the best. Yes, we already hold this truth to be self-evident (and her brand-new best actress Oscar for Still Alice only bolsters this known fact), but it’s always delightful to see her in action.

Film Review: Maps to the Stars (Dir. David Cronenberg)

Maps to the Stars Dir. David Cronenberg [Focus Features; 2014] by 80s Tom Hanks Rating: Tidily packaged as Hollywood hyperbole, Maps to the Stars is a children’s story.

Movie Review: David Cronenberg draws his Maps To The Stars in broad strokes

For the first time in his half-a-century of filmmaking, David Cronenberg has traveled to Hollywood to make a movie—and not just any movie, mind you, but one that’s actually about Hollywood.

'Maps to the Stars' a nightmarish tour of Hollywood narcissism

In its own disturbing, slithery way, the train-wreck watchable melodrama "Maps to the Stars" is as much a horror show as any that the film's director, David Cronenberg, has helmed over his long and provocative career.

Maps of the Stars

David Cronenberg is responsible for films such as The Fly remake, 1988’s Dead Ringers, and 2005’s A History of Violence, yet his new movie may be the most disturbing one yet. The film is a tale of celebrity aspiration and Hollywood misery combining incest, mental illness, a few dead kids.
