When I’d seen David Cronenberg’s last film Cosmopolis a couple of years ago, I said “I was intrigued, never bored but sometimes a bit mystified …”
Well, I could say exactly the same about Maps to the Stars.
Watching the shenanigans of a bunch of neurotic, insecure Hollywood stereotypes shouldn’t have been quite so enthralling, but it was. One madly horrible thing follows another, until there is nowhere to go but inevitability.
Perhaps the Hollywood tropes were a little 90s (or perhaps not – I’ve never been to Hollywood!) but Cronenberg certainly views no topic as being off limits.
Oh. And what is it with Robert Pattinson and his activity in cars …?
