All Critics (17) | 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

Top Critic

The public are either sneered at or cast as victims, and throughout the psyche of the celeb-addict remains elusive.

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

Nov 6, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

Nov 6, 2009 | Full Review…

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.

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.
