Maps to the Stars (2014)
Good acting but movie goes nowhere - what a crock !
The only reason I gave this film a 2 (instead of a 1) is because of the great acting by Moore, Wasikowska, Bird, Cusack, & Pattinson. But what a waste of time and energy. The movie is slick, but full of clichés. Bruce Wagner's screenplay has a couple of funny lines, but seems to go off on too many tangents. The film leaves one wondering whether it's supposed to be a sardonic comedy or a dramatic commentary on Hollywood. Now, if you work in the film industry, this film will undoubtedly make you chuckle more than once. I sat through the film, but kept glancing at my watch waiting to see whether it would go anywhere. Long, weird, tedious (even for David Cronenberg). Three people walked out of the cinema before the film's end, at that one showing. There are a lot of far more interesting films at Cannes this year. This unfortunately isn't one of them, IMHO.
