Shocking! Spoiler Alert

Sorry to spoil the party, I watched this film last night and I can safely say it was a load of drivel. If you enjoy watching irritating, stuck up, spoilt American characters in a film with a bad story line, then this film is for you.

To cut a long story short all the characters aren't likable people, so I didn't feel any compassion to their messed up misery.

Havana (Julianne Moore) is the most irritating character ever, end of! Benjie is one horrible spoilt little brat, Jerome is just a fluffer of a character and doesn't add anything to the film, apart from the Robert Pattinson factor for the vampire loving ladies watching. Dr Stafford Weiss, I didn't really see that character because all I saw was John Cusak. I couldn't remember his characters name in the film after, I just remembered John Cusak. A unprofessional hands on/sado/bondage therapist, that tries to pay his daughter to go away. It was just the same old boring John Cusak, Same hair, same look, same puppy dog eyes and monotone voice just older and fatter. Agatha Weiss (Mia Wasikowska) was the only character which held any kind of on screen presence or intrigue. But not a likable character as a messed up arsonist, inbred weirdo. But she did us all a big favour by murdering Havana.

To sum it all up, they are all messed characters up because they are all inbred. (Great storyline) John Cusak was reaming his own sister and his sister gave birth to two nasty little alien looking kids.

The scenes which the characters are "hallucinating" or seeing ghosts of their conscience where poor, they tried to be scary but failed. The one of Havana's mum was particularly irritating and annoying. I just felt like the shocking scenes weren't done very well either

The morel of this story or movie is don't have sex with your sister, if you do you will have a brother and sister that take drugs, hallucinate, bash peoples brains in with candle sticks, suffocate little ginger kids, kill off their parents and get married.

Cronenberg ignites a magnificent film with passion and humor...

Probably the weirdest monster you'll come across this year, David Cronenberg's Map to the Stars is an odd animal full of wit, charm, and pure entertainment value. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but for those who love rich and layered characters, Cronenberg takes on Hollywood with zeal and humor. Some may classify the attempt as "mean," but no different from what Martin Scorsese brought to the table with The Wolf of Wall Street, a black comedy with a much deeper message is fully on display.

Bruce Wagner's script is a masterclass of writing. He finds all unique characters within our social existences and assembles them with stunning resolve. It's hard to believe the guy who wrote "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors" could be capable of such a feat. We also get a subtle score by Howard Shore and stunning contemporary costumes by Denise Cronenberg. Not since The Devil Wears Prada has fashion felt like a separate character piece on a contemporary film set.

With no short of brilliance, the entire cast ignites some of their finest and most compelling works of their careers. It starts obviously with another powerhouse turn by four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore. As "Havana Segrand," an actress dying for a big comeback, Moore illustrates her most vibrant and fruitful interpretation since "Cathy Whitaker" in Far from Heaven. Ferocious, daring, and completely involved, there's no other actress like Julianne Moore on this cinematic planet. Too good for words.

Everything seemed to finally click for actress Mia Wasikowska in her most daring performance to date. A ticking time bomb of emotion, her interpretation of "Agatha" is damn near close to terrifying. Robert Pattinson leaves all his "Twilight" days behind him and continues to evolve as a true performer. Cronenberg obviously knows what the heartthrob is capable of as he continues to use him frequently.

John Cusack and Olivia Williams are a match made in cinema hell, which secretly means heaven. Two people who are despicable together, the pair play insanely well off each other, showcasing luscious movements that all ring true. The young Evan Bird will have all of us learning his name by end credits. Lots of child stars make soft transitions in upbeat films like Little Miss Sunshine and Whale Rider. This is a brave and charismatic performance, channeling the aura of Justin Bieber (unfortunately just based on looks) but with tenacity as such performers as Ryan Gosling.

There are some tough pills to swallow during the viewing. There's incest, murder, "mean girl," moments, children dying which has characters happy to see it, it just doesn't seem to end. However, you will be entranced and placed under its spell from moment one. Cronenberg takes on subjects like violence and family with assurance. He's displayed this ability many times over in his filmmography. Map to the Stars stands tall with all the director's previous efforts.

Map to the Stars is not coy and completely confident in its demeanor. A well orchestrated and symbolic film that stands as one of the year's best films. This is Cronenberg's best effort since A History of Violence.

Cronenberg's nightmarish satire of 21st century Hollywood - with a dose of pharmaceuticals

I just returned from watching David Cronenberg's new movie 'Maps to the Stars' for the second time, this is my first review on here.

The movie begins with the introduction of Agatha (Mia Wasikowska). The camera pans down the isle of a coach, there we see a sleeping girl, you can see on the t-shirt she is wearing with 'Bad Babysitter' printed on it. Agatha steps off the coach and has arrived in Hollywood, you can see she is disfigured by burns on her face, we assume that the not so subtle elbow-length gloves she wears throughout the movie are hiding her burns also. Agatha tells the limo driver Jerome (Rob Pattinson - in a small but important role) that she is here to help Carrie Fisher write a novel. She also tells Jerome she is visiting family but doesn't go in to details, she seems more interested in sight seeing and visiting celebrity homes such as the previous home of child star Benjie Weiss (Evan Bird), a foul mouthed 13 year old star of the 'Bad Babysitter' franchise. We also learn that Benjie is a recovering drug addict - typical Hollywood child stars aye? I suppose Bengie is rather sane compared to Havana Segrand played by Julianne Moore doing what she does best. Losing her mind! (One of her best roles to date in my opinion). Through mutual friend Carrie fisher, Agatha starts working for Havana as her PA. (or 'chore whore' as Havana bluntly calls it. Havana has issues (what Hollywood fading celebrity doesn't?) She is a fading actress who pops pharmaceutical pills daily; she desperately wants the main role in a remake of a movie her mother was in years ago when she was young and beautiful; At night, she see's her dead mother (Clarice Taggart who died in a fire in the 70's) played by Sarah Gadon. She also has major mommy issues, I won't go into too much detail, oh yeah, and she casually sits on the toilet and 'let's rip' while having a conversation with Agatha..She has no shame! Finally you Havana's unconventional therapist Dr Stafford and his wife Christina Weiss (John Cusack and Olivia Williams) the parents of Benjie.

As the film progresses, the characters Cronenberg has introduced us to, slowly turn much darker and their connections go much further. The hyper reality Hollywood he has created is at times far fetched but at the same time so serious, I was intrigued and didn't want the experience to end. Julianne Moore gives it her all in this and I hope she gets some recognition for her performance at Cannes or next years Oscars. If you are planning on watching this for her, you will not be disappointed.
