Critic Reviews of "Maps To The Stars"Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 05, 2015
This isn't a lousy film; it's a mediocre, ugly film about lousy people.Chicago ReaderMarch 05, 2015
Hollywood has been disemboweling itself since... Sunset Boulevard and The Bad and the Beautiful, but those movies seem like Cream of Wheat compared to Cronenberg's wicked vision.Chicago TribuneMarch 05, 2015
"Maps to the Stars" loses some steam near the end, and its resolution has the predetermined quality of Greek tragedy writ small. Still, I found it (as the Replacements song says) sadly beautiful.New YorkerMarch 02, 2015
According to Cronenberg, the script for "Maps to the Stars," by Bruce Wagner, began life more than twenty years ago, and it shows.RogerEbert.comFebruary 27, 2015
Although it's been dismissed in some quarters as minor Cronenberg-and criticized for "getting Hollywood wrong," or something-it's a sneakily powerful movie.New York Magazine/VultureFebruary 27, 2015
There are scads of scabrous inside-Hollywood psychodramas, but never a festering pyre on the order of David Cronenberg and Bruce Wagner's Maps to the Stars. What a hyperfocused duo of ghouls!FlavorwireJune 18, 2016
So here's a mean, nasty little piece of work - and I have a feeling director David Cronenberg would take that as the compliment it's intended to be.The Film StageJune 06, 2016
Something of a fascinating misfire, still shot and edited with the precise authority that has defined Cronenberg's recent period, but jumbled in the search for narrative control and originality.Today's Zaman (Turkey)February 29, 2016
Bitterly comedic but utterly sad.SF WeeklyDecember 31, 2015
Really this is more a barrel of fish than of monkeys - mostly a jaded movie-industry satire (in a cameo, Carrie Fisher plays herself), but also, being Cronenberg, a horror film, full of ghost stories and little monsters.Tulsa WorldDecember 18, 2015
There's a cruel honesty to it all that's engrossing, when it's not grossing.Seattle WeeklyNovember 12, 2015
We watch to see the worst in Maps, it's revealed, and absolutely nothing about it is surprising. (Even the ghosts are predictable.) Also, unforgivable in the inside-Hollywood canon, Wagner can't craft dialogue or be funny to save his life.
