The Telegraph (5 stars!):

This is Cronenberg’s best film since Spider in 2002; a great, rumbling thundercloud of dark laughs and churning horror, with a cast of characters so incestuously interconnected that it’s mighty hard to fathom who is linked to whom, and how.

Cinemablographer (4.5/5):

Cronenberg takes the ensemble to darkly twisted heights as Moore leads a top-notch cast.

Hey U Guys (4/5 stars):

Most of these are served up by Moore, who continues to prove herself as one of the film world’s greatest assets, bringing a damaged glamour to every role. In Havana, she’s the Julianne who didn’t make all the best choices, her smeared make-up masking the fact that in her middle age, she’s holding onto more regret than she is talent.

Slant:

Maps to the Stars is a scabrous, etched-in-acid comedy that digs deeper into the perversions and pathologies undergirding the Dream Factory than anything since Mulholland Drive.

ByO9aWBIcAAvrQI.jpg-largeLA Weekly:

Julianne Moore is remarkable.

Black Sheep Reviews:

MAPS TO THE STARS is an absolutely brilliant treat for fans of this Canadian auteur. You will be disturbed but you will also be moved, deeply

We Got This Covered:

Wasikowska, doing the best work here as a young woman tiptoeing over an abyss, delivers Maps to the Stars’ most indelible image at the same time that its director tells critics just what it is they can do with their awards.

Flavorwire:

Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’ Is Wickedly Funny and Deliciously Dark

JoBlo:

In addition to Bird, Wasikowska has a haunting quality that makes her a good fit for Cronenberg, while Robert Pattinson nails a small part as the wannabe actor-writer she has a crush on. Even better is Julianne Moore, who plays a kind-of middle aged take-off on Lindsay Lohan, who at her best seems dumb, but gradually reveals herself to be cunning and near-psychotic in her maneuverings around town.

NEW STILL: Another great shot of Julianne Moore in Maps To The Stars + TIFF buzz continues

The fall festivals are around the corner and official announcements even closer. We’ll keep you posted about where Maps To The Stars pops up but TIFF chances are high, as The Playlist points out below.

Excerpt from The Playlist:

Next up, two movies from Cannes that you will definitely be seeing on the fall film festival circuit, undoubtedly TIFF and maybe Telluride or Fantastic Fest too (Venice tends to only play new titles). The first is David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” a type of Hollywood satire (though Cronenberg just calls it an observation of real things happening within the industry). It stars Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and more. There’s no release date for it yet, but eOne is said to be releasing it in the fall. You can bet because Cronenberg is Canadian, perhaps the Martin Scorsese of that country, the movie will have a plum spot at TIFF, to be sure. A few new photos of this one here too.

PHOTO: Another New Still From ‘Maps To The Stars’, Film Runtime Revealed + CANNES BUZZ

We have another new still from Maps To The Stars! This image is Kiara Glasco as Cammy and Evan Bird as Benjie. Telefilm Canada also revealed the runtime for the film – 95 minutes. Click HERE if you’d like to see other stills that have been released so far and here’s a more detailed synopsis from Telefilm Canada.

CammyBenji

The Weiss family is the archetypal Entertainment Industry dynasty: Sanford (John Cusack), the father is a celebrity therapist and best-selling author; Cristina (Olivia Williams), his wife, manages the career of their thirteen year-old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a TV star. One of Sanford’s clients, Havana (Julianne Moore), is an actress who dreams of remaking the film that made her mother, Clarice (Sarah Gadon), a movie star. But her mother, now dead, has come back to haunt her dreams. Benjie emerges from rehab as his elder sister, Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), is released from a stint in a psychiatric hospital where she has been serving time for arson. Ghosts, death, and all manner of vices collide as the family reunites. Maps to the Stars is a darkly satiric drama about celebrity obsession.

Look for Maps To The Stars in 2014 and fingers crossed it will show at the Cannes Film Festival! Buzz already started for MTTS at the prestigious festival, including a recent buzzing from The Playlist.
