Movie Info

Renown Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined and even demeaned what it means to be famous today. Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, Sellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy. Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sara Jessica Parker and Kid Rock among others, help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity. Fame is now a national pastime, it is what millions of us follow, believe in and seemingly what we care about most - as well as a billion dollar-a-year industry. But what does our intense fascination with celebrity say about us? And how much is too high a price to pay for our own curiosity run rampant? Sellebrity captures the free-for-all of pop culture today and the ever-changing face of fame.(c) Official site

  • Mazur miscalculates when he tries to direct viewers' outrage at stars' inability to walk down the street without getting cameras thrust in their faces.

    Jan 9, 2013
  • A smart, noteworthy socio-cultural snapshot, $ellebrity evinces a surprising depth.

    Feb 17, 2013 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • A numbing viewing experience that's oddly constructed and a touch too sanctimonious to take seriously, eventually coming to blame the viewer for the ills of the tabloid industry.

    Jan 31, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Comes off as little more than a feature-length trashing of colleagues who director and celebrity photographer Kevin Mazur feels are giving his profession a bad name.
