David Cronenberg’s MAPS TO THE STARS is more hit than miss. It is good, but it does take time for a viewer to get used to Cronenberg’s strange and absurd Hollywood. But that seems to be his and screenwriter Bruce Wagner’s point: Hollywood is not real, and is the home of the odd, strange, and dysfunctional. This is demonstrated by the fact that every character in the film is flawed, but none more than Julianne Moore who is a deeply insecure actress. Mia Wasikowska plays a destructive person with some serious screwed-up parents. John Cusack and Evan Bird are also good in their own demented Hollywood-way. Robert Pattinson, who was in Cronenberg’s last film, COSMOPOLIS, is perhaps the most normal.
