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

  • 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.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A lot of valid points are scored in passing against the celebrity-industrial complex, but there's not enough real news here.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The tone elsewhere is too often hectoring and self-righteous: a team of salesmen exhorting us not to listen to salesmen.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A shambling mix of strained metaphor and truism in the service of a silly conspiracy theory.

Audience Reviews for Starsuckers

  • May 08, 2014
    An interesting polemic look at the manufactured world of mass media and some of the problems that underpin it. At times the style of the documentary jars and doesn't know itself, but the Max Clifford footage alone given recent events makes you think about the rest more.

    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.
