    bummer that you need a movie to make "perfect sense". being spoon fed is so boring.

    Personally I loved this film, and to me it all made sense. I thought it was very easy to follow narratively. I agree about the dodgy CGI moment though. Some of the acting was great, especially Julianne Moore.

    A movie that puts Hollywood actors down? Like shooting fish in a barrel. But it's directed by David Croneberg? I'm there.

    I watched this film while I was in the Middle East: one country that is famous of cutting "bad" scenes from movies, so I was even more lost than what this film wants its audience to be. I am still struggling to make sense of what was going on there.

    I saw Map To The Stars Last night. My feeling is I don't know what kind of movie (or I should say story) I'm watching until the last scene. I turned to my buddy when it was all over and I said, "It's a horror movie, and the big reveal tells me what we're looking at people who are ... participants in a cult." Saying what kind of cult would be a spoiler. The movie does end with a 'marriage'. Most people would think that's a happy ending but that depends on what you mean by 'happy'. Plus it seemed to me a lot of the characters were wrapped up in narco-think with all the pills going around. They take their mood stabilizers and listen to the shit that comes out of their mouths. And my oh God, and poor Carrie Fisher. Her appearance in the movie was the most shocking thing about it and I don't think that was intentional. @AlexTamsula on Twitter.

    I just watched all 21 of Cronenberg's films again (as well as some of his shorts and TV work on CHclip - yeah, huge fanboy!).
    Maps to the Stars is not his very best, but like every Cronenberg film, it certainly bears rewatching - gets better every time, as you delve deeper into it (and also get to appreciate the warped humour)!

    Just rewatched this movie and i do agree with a lot of what you're saying. Something is missing from this movie that i myself can't put my finger on. I'd love for you to do analysis video of this movie, even though it's few years old. I'd love to know if you've come any closer to figuring out what the hell is really going on with this movie. Just a thought. Lol

    i'd like to say this, bad cgı at the end is related to whole idea of the film and i loved it. what i think it means is the cheapness and artificial behaviours of hollywood stars are in a way connected to the cgi effects. he demonstrates it with a cheap cgi effect.

    I kinda... loved? the movie.
    except the little kid - Benjie - was an awful actor. there are *so many* actors out there, i refuse to believe they legit couldn't find one who looked like a 13 year old and who could actually react with, like, facial expressions, and say dialogue in a way that demonstrated some understanding as to *why* his character would say that... ugh, everyone else did so great, but this kid really took me out of it

    Julianne Moore must have literally hit rock bottom to sign up for this crap movie.
    Even the extras are horrendous. This is one of those shit movies where actors die before they go to doing straight-to-DVD movies in the $5 bin at Walmart.

    Just found your channel to see people's opinion on the film. I feel the same. I believe the film lacked back story and resolve. An example of this is the storyline about Julianne and her mother. it didn't feel real enough. A lot of weird shit was happening, it was like watching a train wreck. Great performances by Julianne and Mia though.

    I am a Cronenberg fan as well. THE FLY, NAKED LUNCH and VIDEODROME are my favorites. EXISTENZ is another interesting film.

    John Cusack has been my favorite actor for as long as I have been interested in films. Lately, his performances have been declining. I could barely watch The Raven and only saw a few scenes of The Paperboy. I just watched this one because I thought it would be interesting.
    I was hoping to see the story panned out from the eyes of Cusack's character but instead I saw it from the eyes of Mia Wasikowska's character. For the Cusack fan in me, I would have hoped to see it from the eyes of the former, to maybe have some sort of redemption of his acting quality. I agree on the B-. And I also look forward to watching more Cronenberg's films.

    I loved this movie. I'll be honest, I'm a Cronenberg fan-boy, but I'm a bigger fan of his earlier, body-horror movies like The Fly and Videodrome. This was the first Cronenberg movie that he has done recently that I was mesmerized by. Yes, it had its flaws, particularly in tone and structure. And yes, the CGI at the end was pretty lame. But, I developed an emotional connection to the film. Overall, I'd give it either an A- or a B+.

    Really Stuckman? You cant say the word, come on, say it, say it, Stuckman, is not that hard, say it, INCEST, the movies has INCEST THEMES IN IT. Isnt really that hard, and the brother married that had kids together is very fascinating, is a shame that Hollywood culture made them so superficial, because they could had become a good character study movie, appart from the ubber superficial Hollywood bullshit.

    Croneberg films that make sense and are straight forward are not as satisfying as the ones that get under your skin with weirdness. I would argue that Videodrome and eXistenZ stick with me way more than A History of Violence or even The Fly (Though The Fly is still one of his greatest films)
    Cronenberg is best when he makes you question yourself and your comprehension. When you wake up the night after seeing the film and ask yourself, "What did he *MEAN BY THAT?!?!*
    Consequently, though I think it's a fine film, A History of Violence is not a film I ever return to. It's not one I show to friends to get them hooked on Cronenberg. It's just to 'normal' in a lot of ways and doesn't explore as deeply as his other work.
