There are few insights into what makes a celebrity or why people are drawn to them in this movie. But there is one about the writer/director, himself. Believe in your own myth too long, [and]people are going to start to realize that it isn't real.

Unfortunately in Celebrity, Woody Allen's line of attack is compromised by his being at least half in love with the very glitterati he sets out to savage.

Indicative of a time when Allen had a degree of vivacity and ingenuity in his work before it went increasingly down the turgid, tourist-porn route in Europe.

Celebrity is about the tiny planets revolving around Hollywood's many suns, trying to absorb some heat. It's a cold universe nonetheless.

The movie is filmed in black-and-white, but it's a far cry from his love poems Manhattan and Broadway Danny Rose. Celebrity is smaller, more cramped.
