Critic Reviews for Starsuckers
Atkins is keener to bring comedy to the subject with a series of stunts that make for amusing if hardly revelatory watching
Atkins deserves credit for a lively and thought-provoking documentary on a subject more suitable to a book than a film.
This lively, ludic documentary about fame, celebrity and the mass media is an entertaining mess.
While this documentary is packed with critical and entertaining material, it has no central through-line to hold it together
This provocative, proudly partisan but consistently entertaining doc is compulsory viewing not just for everyone working within the media, but for anyone who watches TV, reads the papers, surfs the net or has to walk down a city street.
Starsuckers, a rather gimmicky documentary, certainly fails to contribute much to the table.
Knocking celeb culture might be like shooting fish in a barrel, but documentary activist Chris Atkins gets a pretty loud bang.
A lot of valid points are scored in passing against the celebrity-industrial complex, but there's not enough real news here.
A more chaotic mixture of good and bad. Its faults include a tiresomely hectoring narrator and an approach that tries to cram far too many disparate thoughts into 100 minutes.
The tone elsewhere is too often hectoring and self-righteous: a team of salesmen exhorting us not to listen to salesmen.
A shambling mix of strained metaphor and truism in the service of a silly conspiracy theory.
An entertaining, thought-provoking and necessary attack on today's celebrity-obsessed media.
Audience Reviews for Starsuckers
Micro budget expose of our obsession with celebrity and the vultures who have ensnared us. Interesting if not always convincing arguments for how we are deluded.More
