With the camera flashes so plentiful, it’s no wonder hometown auteur David Cronenberg showed up to Tuesday’s Roy Thomson Hall red carpet for his new film, Maps to the Stars, wearing heavy-duty Julbo mountaineering sunglasses. Julianne Moore, who won Best Actress at Cannes for her role in stylized Hollywood satire, praised the script by Bruce Wagner. John Cusack shuffled by, while Cronenberg’s latest muse, Twilight star Robert Pattinson—who, unsurprisingly, elicited the loudest cheers from teenagers in the crowd—praised the director for being brave enough to be weird. We’re not so sure “bravery” is the whole story, though.
