Cronenberg, who has done some wonderful innovative direction in the past, fills "Maps to the Stars" with prototypical Hollywood archetypes; such as the young tween star who is spoiled to riches, the dysfunctional Hollywood family whose past can't derail them to brighter pastures, and so and so on. I am not going to tour you too much of the plot of "Maps to the Stars" cause that would be an exercise of stupidity. Sorry David! Your movie did not give me the chills of your classics as "A History of Violence", this to me was more a "Hollywood History of Silence". Now, the movie was not a total disaster because of the great Julianne Moore. Her performance as the obsessive actress Havana Segrand was quite grand. But I can't say the same for the humdrum performances from John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, and Robert Pattinson. David, you just should have, to quote Britney, "Gimme Moore". It's a shame because I originally thought that "Maps to the Stars" was going to be a tactical cinematic discovery, instead it played similar Hollywood strings we have heard & seen before in Hollywood archetype movies. So the only reason to find your way to "Maps to the Stars" is to witness Julianne Moore's electrical performance.

This film starts off interesting--with Mickey Rourke generally being cool--but quickly devolves into a bad made-for-TV movie. Also, they should have called this "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man... and the random helicopter pilot who served in Vietnam." Terrible film.

Unfunny talkfest satire about a male casanova hairdresser cheating on his gf w literally all of his female clientele.Weirdly, the actors here are insiders into watching the Hollywood actor sex-trade politics, some actual contributors like Beatty who co-wrote and starred along w his reported real life lover julie christie - who reportedly didn't want to be in it, but did it as a favor to Beatty.It has a pervading melancholy angst instead of being a light adult sex comedy - that heaviness sucks the life out of the whole movie.It should have been a real popcorn fest watching hollywood exes dealing w each other, but its like a quietly seething argument at a funeral - you just want out of there, but you politely stay til its over.The movie ends with a typical 70s, ambiguous ending where everyone wanders away in an angst-y daze.Its Tired, dated and could only be enhanced by commentary, so at least they could gossip about the interesting things going on while you are being tortured w this bore-fest. Dont bother.. Look. Now Ive said to much..lolOne star for the great soundtrack.1 of 5
