Dalibor's rating of the film Maps to the Stars

Quasi-satire of Hollywood's decadence failing with its ridiculous plot. Weird motifs are the only thing keeping interest in this piece until it becomes obvious they're nothing but a skin-deep symbolism being randomly shuffled. Accomplishing nothing by it Cronenberg thus enhances his recent obsession with "hidden controversy" going as desperate as killing off his crew for absolutely no reason.
