Critic Reviews for Starsuckers

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (1)

Atkins is keener to bring comedy to the subject with a series of stunts that make for amusing if hardly revelatory watching

Time Out
Top Critic

Atkins deserves credit for a lively and thought-provoking documentary on a subject more suitable to a book than a film.

Sunday Times (UK)

This lively, ludic documentary about fame, celebrity and the mass media is an entertaining mess.

Full Review… | November 6, 2009
Observer (UK)

While this documentary is packed with critical and entertaining material, it has no central through-line to hold it together

Shadows on the Wall

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.

Audience Reviews for Starsuckers


Obnoxiously condescending in it's delivery of mostly obvious information about the media and fame. The most interesting part was near the end when they exposed Bob Geldof's well intentioned charitable acts as red herrings sponsored by big media and government, perhaps causing more harm than good.

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.

It was a very strong topic to talk about, and I completely understand where the movie is going. BUT, I wish this movie was more like a documentary. I felt I was watching the glamor that the movie is ridiculing. His fits move was much better.
