VIDEO: Maps To The Stars is “a huge, almost sinful truckload of fun” + US trailer released!

MTTSUSPoster

Maps To The Stars is on The Playlist’s 25 Best Films of 2015 We’ve Already Seen with a fun verdict posted about the film:

Verdict: Soapy to the point of lunacy, overwrought to a near-camp extreme, and atypically messy from the usually hospital-corners Cronenberg, “Maps to the Stars” is also a huge, almost sinful truckload of fun. Assembling a wonderful cast who take delight in ripping to shreds the folly and hubris of the vacant Hollywood lifestyle, the film is a riot of inside-baseball winks about the film industry, and the deeply narcissist, rotten-to-the-core sellouts who populate it. Julianne Moore’s titanic performance as the fading star facing encroaching middle age (and therefore irrelevance) is so good that it won her Cannes’ Best Actress award, and in one go ensures that she herself will never suffer her character’s fate. But all of the cast do sterling work: it’s a, “Hey, where you been?” to John Cusack, and a, “Hello, we’ll be seeing a lot more of you,” to Evan Bird, especially. It’s may simply be a gonzo gothic telenovela (so much soap can only ever generate so much froth), but it’s a giddy good time at the pictures.

While there was some concern that Cannes’ Best-Actress winning “Maps To The Stars” deserved to be released last fall, there is something particularly fitting about the movie hitting theaters the weekend after the Oscars. Just after Hollywood spends an entire night congratulating themselves, David Cronenberg will be delivering his gleefully caustic take on the industry and everyone in it…

Maps To The Stars releases in the US on Feb. 27th.
