A Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg fan on twitter attended Cronenberg’s book signing tonight. Here he talks about how hard it is to get independent films made, he says his experience is it takes ten years. He says he doesn’t have anything that he feels he needs to do. He also doesn’t plan to make a film out of his novel-his first- “Consumed”.

My notes for you:

“Julianne Moore is terrific.”
“This is really, on one level, a jet black comedy, but it’s one of those comedies in when you laugh it’s that nervous laughter that’s almost like horror.

INTERVIEW: John Cusack: ‘Hollywood is a whorehouse & people go mad’ – The Guardian

Interview: Print John Cusack Robert Pattinson

A very candid interview with John Cusack, and a lot on his career. I recommend a full read. I’ve pulled in the part that links directly with the themes in Maps To The Stars. John has harsh words for what he sees in Hollywood, the obsession with youth and the ruthlessness of the place these days. He had a very different, even nurturing experience. I like that he’s drawing attention to this.
