American Catharsis: A Cronenberg Double Bill

MUBI Special

Maps to the Stars

David Cronenberg Canada, 2014

Following his indictment of capitalism in Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg set his sights on Hollywood with this piercing look into celebrity culture and its many venomous symptoms. Ghosts, dark secrets, and the occasionally fatal dream machine that is cinema align in this calamitous tale of family.

Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg Canada, 2012

Leave it to writer-director David Cronenberg to make “American” movies in his own way. We celebrate his wonderfully twisted vision of the USA with a double feature devoted to New York and Hollywood. Robert Pattinson stars is his wicked adaptation of the ultra-modern vision of novelist Don DeLillo.
