Scanners
There are movies with heads exploding and then there's David Cronenberg's "Scanners." The 1980 sci-fi film is still one of the director's finest hours, and one of the best the genre has ever seen. But most of all, while some movies from the era haven't aged very well, "Scanners" has one sequence that is still jaw dropping to this today.

This year’s “Map to the Stars” marks the second straight time David Cronenberg has worked with former “Twlight” hearthrob Robert Pattinson and the third time with Sarah Gadon, who first appeared in “A Dangerous Method” alongside the director’s previous muse, Viggo Mortensen. In the run-up to that 2011 historical film, Cronenberg took part in a short video – along with co-star Michael Fassbender – where he revealed his thoughts on the creative process.

This past weekend, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" made a record-breaking $301 million global debut, proving that, once again, when it comes to summer movies, nothing beats expensive sound and fury. And it can be a bit disheartening for those looking to go to the movies to watch something that will challenge, disturb, provoke and intrigue. But David Cronenberg is here to help.

Maps To The Stars
When you’re a director like David Cronenberg at the Cannes Film Festival, and you're movie stars actors such as John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, and Mia Wasikowska, it’s only natural to have a lot of attention get thrown your way. At the press conference for Cronenberg’s latest film “Maps to the Stars,” a movie that’s about the fear, desperation, and greed that runs rampant in Hollywood, the cast receives the same type of attention that the movie’s central characters are so desperate to obtain.

Cannes, 2014 Playlist
Time for a little mid-Cannes Palme check-up. Out of a conservative eighteen films playing in competition, there’s only four left to go. In the madness of press lines, while fighting sleepless nights and ignoring growling stomachs, we have managed to see and review all fourteen films and our grades have covered all ranges; from near-failures (“The Captive,” “The Search”) to total winners (“Foxcatcher,” “Mr. Turner”) But that’s just us. Daily magazines at Cannes like Screen International love to pool critics’ opinion into a consensus and analyze who’s got the edge for the Palme. So let’s take a closer look at what’s favored, and what we thought of each one (with a little special attention given to a particular Turkish talkie.)

Maps To The Stars
Real talk: it's been quite a while since David Cronenberg made something truly satisfying. "Cosmopolis" has a few defenders, "A Dangerous Method" not so much, and while there's stuff to like in "Spider," "A History Of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," all felt compromised to some degree or other. Indeed, the truly unfiltered Cronenberg picture, one where bits fall off people or people try to have sex with orifices not traditionally used for any sexual act, seems like something of a distant memory at this point.

Maps To The Stars
Yes, Cannes is next week and there are a lot of films playing, but it seems there are only two movies playing: "The Rover" and "Maps To The Stars." It seems every day comes another peek at one of those films, and today is no different, with David Cronenberg's film getting yet another trailer.

In between supervising the new 2K digital film transfer of “Scanners” for Criterion and nabbing a competiting slot in the Cannes Film Festival for “Maps To The Stars,” Canadian provacteur David Cronenberg has found time to write his very first novel, joining the ranks of other directors like Guillermo Del Toro. As is becoming standard in the literary world – at least for larger properties – the novel has its very own trailer, however this one has the benefit of Cronenberg himself at the helm.

God, I wish this conversation between John Landis, David Cronenberg and John Carpenter, about the history, nature and culture of horror movies, could go forever. And all this back in 1982, a golden age for horror and a time when all three men were at the height of their considerable powers.
