Canadian auteur David Cronenberg presented a director's take on a Hollywood infected by taboo sex and backstabbing, plus a few ghosts, Sunday. Tommy Lee Jones, meanwhile, turned the Western around for a perilous eastward trek with madwomen at Cannes.Jones' "The Homesman" and Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" screened the same day that Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and other cast members from "The Expendables 3" rode in tanks in the Mediterranean seaside town, lending star power to the festival.Cronenberg's look behind the tinsel of Hollywood was the second competition film shown on the fifth day of the 12-day festival, giving it a heavily North American flavor.It stars "Twilight" idol Robert Pattinson as a Hollywood wannabe working as a chauffeur and Mia Wasikowska as a schizophrenic.It stars Jones and two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank as a team escorting the madwomen.
