Maps To The Stars
David Cronenberg is back, and this time he's taking on his most terrifying, mind-altering subject yet: Hollywood families. Yep, the filmmaker who has spent a career shaking us up with various types of body horror, is continuing his exploration into the psyche, following up the Freudian "A Dangerous Method," and the chatty "Cosmopolis" with "Maps To The Stars."

Enemy, Jake Gyllenhaal
At the risk of blatantly repeating ourselves, Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve are on the cusp of a banner 2013 that is about to hit its crest. Their first-unveiled collaboration, the harrowing, Fincher-with-more-emotional-resonance crime thriller “Prisoners” has already bruised audiences in Telluride and Toronto (read our review here). But if “Prisoners” is the grimmest studio film you’ve seen since “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” then “Enemy”—chronologically their first collaboration—is the equally dark but more experimental and arty cousin. And a terrifically haunting one at that.

Enemy, Jake Gyllenhaal

It seems that every day since it was announced, Marc Webb's “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” has walked a line between misdirection and simple confusion as to which elements to keep. The excision of Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson character was just the latest example, and while Felicity Jones faced rumors that she's playing the Black Cat, it turns out it might be Lily Hollister/Menace instead. But today, another actress has in fact clarified her role in the film, and Webb has hinted at a notorious group's presence in future installments.

After spending a couple of years in the last decade making well-received, more traditionally made dramas, David Cronenberg delved back into the weird last year with “Cosmopolis.” Now, production has begun next film, “Maps to the Stars,” which sounds like it could be a combination of both styles. The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah Gadon. Until now, not much has been known about the film except that it would take on Hollywood and celebrity culture while also doubling as some kind of ghost story, but now a much clearer picture is emerging.

Though it went mostly underseen in the U.S. , Amma Asante's 2004 film "A Way Of Life" was one of the best debut films by a British director in the last decade. A tough, powerful Wales-set drama with a brace of deeply moving performances, it won Asante the BAFTA Carl Foreman award for best debut by a British filmmaker as well as top prizes from the London and Miami Film Festivals, and marked the writer-director as a serious talent to watch.
