Critics Consensus: Narratively unwieldy and tonally jumbled, Maps to the Stars still has enough bite to satisfy David Cronenberg fans in need of a coolly acidic fix.

Dark send-up of Hollywood mixes wit with abuse, dysfunction.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Maps to the Stars is a brooding, disturbing film from director David Cronenberg that deals with many dark, mature subjects, including incest, abuse, and other severe family dysfunction, making it too intense even for older teens. Some scenes are graphically violent and bloody, including one in which someone is clubbed to death and another in which an adult woman is dragged across the floor and punched by her father. A dog is shot by accident, and a teenager strangles a young boy. There's also nudity (breasts, glimpse of a man's genitals) and strong sexual content, including a threesome, sex in the back of a car, and lots of references to sex. Language is extremely strong, with "f--k," "s--t," and many more used frequently. Teens drink and use drugs; in facqt, one of the main characters is a teen who's fresh out of rehab and can't stay the course.
