WATCH: David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” Looks Delightfully, Frightfully Unhinged
The renowned director's newest stars Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, and Robert Pattinson.
David Cronenberg‘s career has evolved with such precise method over the decades, it’s easy to submit oneself willingly to the madness at this point. The visionary director—who cemented forever reverence back in the ’80s with the body/techno-horror of The Fly, Videodrome, Scanners, and Dead Ringers—has shifted the drama to more tangible, real-world insanity in the new millennium with A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, and A Dangerous Method.
Cronenberg’s new film, Maps to the Stars, continues the theme of celebrity the director ruminated on in 2012’s Cosmopolis with an ensemble cast (including Julianne Moore, in a Cannes Best Actress–winning performance) slowly shattering under the pressure of fame, fortune, and family. Let the crack-ups begin.
Maps to the Stars opens March 17.
