Maps to the Stars
Maps to the Stars (2015)

With this tale of a secret-filled Hollywood family on the verge of implosion, director David Cronenberg (EASTERN PROMISES, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from our celebrity-obsessed… More

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.

Geoff Pevere
Globe and Mail

Cronenberg's vision is as bright as a sunlamp, sterile as an operating theatre and still as a morgue.

For a movie that has so many problems, it is one of the more watchable ones.

Herald Sun (Australia)

Though hardly a feel-good film for the ages, this drop down the other side of a career peak lands exactly in the very place it should.

David Cronenberg pans satiric gold from the muck of celebrity ills, in a Tinseltown where reality depends on your dosage.

FILMINK (Australia)

It offers up plenty of reasons to avoid Hollywood, but few reasons why you'd want to watch the movie. Is it a sendup of the film business, a ghostly nightmare, or a stone-cold drama about dysfunctional families? It's hard to say.

The Atlantic

So crisply directed, furiously paced and gleefully performed that you go along for the ride.

Todd McCarthy
Hollywood Reporter

Comes off like a prank more than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it.

Craig Mathieson
The Age (Australia)

A scabrous journey through Hollywood's malignant mindset that starts with narcissism and ends with death rituals.

Maps to the Stars is a visually stunning, societally jaded, psychosexual piece of work THAT WORKS. It is modern supremacy for cynics, much like myself, and is a… More
