Movie Info

"ADDICTED TO FAME" is the hilarious, outrageous, and ultimately tragic true story of one filmmaker's journey from obscurity to moral blindness in the seductive glare of the media spotlight. Director DAVID GIANCOLA wanted to break out by making a "Movie that mocked B-Movies". He thought he could manipulate the media by casting ANNA NICOLE SMITH. In the end the media manipulated him instead as his star and one of his Producers died in a media feeding frenzy. The film bombed but the story was the

"Addicted" proves a strangely sad yet wildly compelling cautionary tale.

A valuable reflection of contemporary celebrity culture - simply because it shows us how low we've fallen.

Behind-the-scenes look at Anna Nicole Smith's swan song is barely more competent than the exploitation flick it examines.

So how much are attention addicts Giancola and Anna Nicole Smith alike as they weirdly bond away in his movie? Giancola was shrewd enough to foolproof his film with deliberate self-parody, while Smith succumbed to her own self-dehumanization.

Judging by the film's alternately self-pitying, self-aggrandizing, and bitter tone, the schlock director is afflicted with a bizarre lack of self-consciousness to rival Smith's own impregnable wall of self-delusion.

The cinematic equivalent of staging a disaster and then bitching about the mess.
