Cronenberg Does Hollywood
Behold the trailer for David Cronenberg's latest, "Maps to the Stars." It is rated R and contains STRONG DISTURBING VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL CONTENT, GRAPHIC NUDITY, LANGUAGE AND SOME DRUG MATERIAL. So, the usual Cronenberg.
"But the film’s most au courant and inflammatory conceit is no doubt the portrait of the 13-year-old mega-star, Benjie Weiss (Evan Bird), a kid just out of rehab whose longtime success on TV and $780 million gross for his latest film allow him to call his agent stuff like 'Jew faggot' and get away with it. He also thinks it’s funny when he labels people 'vabinas' and, on a would-be goodwill visit, asks a hospitalized young girl how her AIDS is doing."
