  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
