If, however, you're looking for something more classically Lynchian than the    
return of Twin Peaks, David Cronenberg made something that might interest you:  
In "Maps to the Stars", a new girl lands in Hollywood, enters a film inside a   
film, a world populated by childish grown-ups and ultra-cruel kids, haunted by  
ghosts and revenants who have come to announce that -- without spoiling too     
much of the plot -- the same thing that has happened before is happening again. 
But the film also has a proper opening, a proper ending, and, in between, some  
of Cronenberg's sharpest moments in recent memory. The overall genre is already 
well-established -- Hollywood as a set for a horror movie that mirrors the      
horrors of commodification -- but while other recent attempts ranged from       
slightly annoying (The Canyons) to openly insulting (The Neon Demon), this one  
strikes the right balance between the cliché of life-as-a-cliché and the real   
crisis of social relations that animates it. Plus Vorfilme, Nachfilme, Bar.
