More Info:
  • James Mottram

    Detractors may carp that Cronenberg is showing us nothing new, but Maps is so flawless in its execution, it vividly refreshes the subject matter. Never overcooking the setting, it’s a story right in his wheelhouse; a very human look at characters barely clinging to their humanity.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    There’s so much in this seething cauldron of a film, so many film-industry neuroses exposed and horrors nested within horrors, that one viewing is too much, and not nearly enough. Cronenberg has made a film that you want to unsee – and then see and unsee again.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Please don’t bore me by complaining that the characters are “unlikable.” The defense admits that the movie is indefensible. Just breathe in the aroma of decay and howl like a banshee.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's a strange, fascinating exercise in what Joel Coen once described as "tone management," job No. 1 for any director.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    You can laugh with Maps to the Stars, but you can't laugh it off. Prepare to be knocked for a loop.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Maps to the Stars is haunted by ghosts, the way the film industry is haunted by its past, and Cronenberg gradually tapers down the dark humor and starts to amp up the ugliness of these blank, superficial lives.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    The creepiest haunted Hollywood movie since "Mulholland Drive," David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars is working an even deeper graveyard groove than David Lynch did.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Budd Wilkins

    If the research that Cronenberg and Wagner engaged in for Maps to the Stars oftentimes appears more entomological than sociological, there's nonetheless a plaintive chord of melancholy that plays throughout the film.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    The film is a sickly enjoyable wallow in the scandalous, fucked-up side of showbusiness, and a real return to form for the filmmaker.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    While not the director's canniest piece of filmmaking, it's unquestionably his angriest, politically motivated achievement. Every missive hits its target hard with a comedy-horror combo aimed squarely at the kind of commercial stupidity that Cronenberg has avoided throughout his 45-year career.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    For all its venom, “Maps” is one of the more compassionate movies from Cronenberg (“A Dangerous Method,” “Eastern Promises”). The corrosive humor and icy tone eventually give way to melancholy. No one here can be saved.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    The Canadian horror maestro scrapes away the surface of Hollywood to discover a magnificently Cronenbergian outbreak of tortured families, reprehensible behaviour and extreme violence.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    The status-anxiety, fame-vertigo, sexual satiety and that all-encompassing fear of failure which poisons every triumph are displayed here with an icy new connoisseurship, a kind of extremism which faces down the traditional objection that films like this are secretly infatuated with their subject.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    A brutal, crackling and savage Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars knows exactly where it's going, carefully breaking every rule in the book. After carefully constructing his crystal kingdom, Cronenberg launches his stones with dark, mischievous joy.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    Screenwriter Bruce Wagner (who's been skillfully dissecting Hollywood misfits high and low since his 1991 novel, "Force Majeure") has crafted a darkly humorous moral fable that Cronenberg embraces with unabashed glee.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Once things get going, and especially when Moore takes center stage, "Maps" becomes more involving, sometimes queasily funny, and even, almost despite itself, a tiny bit moving. Hooray for Hollywood, indeed.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    By the time you get to the end, Cronenberg has pinned all his people against the screen like so many laboratory specimens, ripped off their scabs, and vivisected their longings: an old wound here, a long--deferred dream there. Still, the movie sticks with you. It's a fleeting nightmare that refuses to fade. Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The movie can be over-the-top and the characters are rarely anything more than vile. And yet, the whole thing is mesmerizing.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    An entertaining tour of Tinseltown served with poisoned popcorn.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Maps to the Stars is at its most potent and beautiful by far when it becomes a ghost story — when the departed, not just Havana’s mother, return to quiz the living.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    In its own disturbing, slithery way, the train-wreck watchable melodrama Maps to the Stars is as much a horror show as any that the film's director, David Cronenberg, has helmed over his long and provocative career.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It takes a perverse effort of will to love “Maps to the Stars.” It’s a little too chilly, and in some places too easy. But you may find yourself drawn back to it, and retracing its route from the familiar to the uncanny, from entertainment to revulsion, from dream to nightmare.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Some of the gags Bruce Wagner’s script lands about the business of Hollywood and the insanity it breeds call out for rimshots that Cronenberg never supplies. The silence can be awkward, but it’s just as often fascinating.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Cronenberg’s map doesn’t lead to a satisfying destination in a typical story sense, but it is a remarkable quest. For a movie that has so many problems, it is one of the more watchable ones. Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A lot of the movie works, but enough doesn’t for Maps to the Stars to go down as a lost opportunity and one of this director’s braver missteps.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    When every character is always operating at maximum loathsomeness, it can be difficult to recalibrate your disgust-o-meter. I suspect this sense of moral vertigo, and the resulting nausea, is part of what Cronenberg is after, but his skill at evoking those states in the viewer doesn’t make the experience of watching Maps to the Stars any less sour.

    Slate Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The fact that Cronenberg directed almost works against Maps to the Stars: We expect greatness from him, not just proficiency, and he doesn't exactly have a gift for comedy, not even the black kind. But the movie still has the darkly glittering Cronenberg touch, even if it's just a light brushing.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Cronenberg assumes a distinctly clinical approach to the emotional, social and business shenanigans on display here, a perspective that has brilliantly served some of his overtly psychological, horror and sci-fi pieces but gives this one a brittle and airless feel.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    What stops David Cronenberg’s grotesque noir Maps to the Stars, written by LA insider Bruce Wagner, from feeling tired is that it’s deliciously odd.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    It’s a movie you’ve seen many times before, just never in the perverse key of Cronenberg.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s well-made and well-acted, but it’s also a grotesque, self-indulgent and ultimately tiresome satire that leaves behind an unpleasant stench.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    In "The Player," Robert Altman carves up Hollywood with knowing, surgical precision. Cronenberg is a gifted filmmaker in his own right, but here he takes a meat-ax to the place. He gets what he's after but leaves quite a mess.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    If a pointless and nasty Hollywood satire filled with vile characters and no one to root for sounds like a good time, go see Maps to the Stars.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    This unblinking yet unsatisfying ensemble drama features kinky sex, ruthless opportunism, violence and psychosis. Very Cronenberg.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Maps struggles to mix its various genres: Part showbiz sendup, part ghost story, part dysfunctional-family drama, the movie instead comes across as so much jaded mumbo-jumbo.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Julianne Moore seems to be the one person in the film that truly gets the tone right, playing Havana like a person walking a tightrope over a yawning pit of psychosis, her every emotion bubbling up and threatening to knock her off.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    The goal here is cynical satire. The result, sadly, is just a yawn.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Hard-core Hollywood haters will best appreciate Maps to the Stars, a campy poison-pen letter to Tinseltown that makes “Sunset Boulevard’’ look like a tourism infomercial by comparison.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    She’s (Moore) the best thing in this toxic carnage of creepy, self-indulgent decadence, but under the direction of loopy Canadian David Cronenberg, she goes beyond the limit of acceptable artistry.
