Reviews

Starsuckers is a feature documentary about the celebrity obsessed media, that uncovers the real reasons behind our addiction to fame and blows the lid on the corporations and individuals who profit from it. Made completely independently over 2 years in secret, the film journeys through the dark underbelly of the modern media. Using a combination of never before seen footage, undercover reporting, stunts and animation, the film reveals the toxic effect the media is having on us all and especially our children.

I'd like to think we're all shrewd enough to know that many tabloid headlines are nonsense but the degree to which news is exaggerated and manufactured is frightening. The celebrity obsessed culture that is ruining our media with a flood of banality and trivial non-news may seem nothing more than innocuous rubbish but the truth is far more sinister. Whilst never being dull or preachy this film is both hilarious and frightening at times. Very thought provoking and very entertaining. Not often you can say that about a film. Considering the multitude of major media corporations this film targets the director Chris Atkins (nominated for a BAFTA for the groundbreaking Taking Liberties) has got some real balls and immense integrity to release this at all. It was superb at the cinema but the DVD promises heaps of extra footage they couldn't cram into the movie in the form of DVD extras. So - go buy the film Max Clifford and Rupert Murdoch tried to stop with an injunction (what higher recommendation could there be?!)

A great film reflecting modern media manipulating of the masses. Very relevant and revealing. It cost a lot more in the high street than amazon. Shows how the papers and big organised media show doesn't really control it's own animal and anything can be reported without editorial control. It reflects the sycophantic obsessed with no talent celebrity world we live in now. Recommended highly. A must watch.

British Documentarist Chris Atkins' Starsuckers is an urgent deconstruction of the fame game, and sets out the tools used to get us hooked on celebrity... this is celebrity as the well groomed face of consumerism, and there's something thrilling in the way the film exposes what might once have seemed attractive as ugly in it's methods and motives. Like Michael Moore, Atkins is wholly at ease with pop culture, makes shrewd use of archive footage, and has a fondness for the revealing stunt.... There's unbridled rage at the hijacking of the Make Poverty History campaign by the self promoting stars of Live8. Smuggled into cinemas by unknown distributors, rich with hidden camera footage and boldly naming names, Starsuckers looks like the work of revolutionaries: a precision skewering of a global epidemic of narcissism.

Starsuckers was a brilliantly researched and at times shockingly alarming documentary. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and would definitely recommend it to anybody who either loves or despises celebrity culture. It is incredibly eye opening and gives a completely new perspective on the effect media and tabloid news has on our lives and those close to us, especially the young. The extras were great too especially the interview with the Morrissey fans.

Format: DVD
As somebody who is casually involved with 'media types' and the loathed 'creative industries' (read: middle men making money out of people's unrealised aspirations and dreams), STARSUCKERS pretty much says it all about the fame obssessed media industry that is dominating our lives and why it is nigh well impossible for anybody to genuinely 'make it'. A carefully controlled mind game we all play into because it is such a massive part of our daily lives. It's also a relatively simple form of control. The cancerous idea that if you're not famous, you're nobody.

There's little I can add to the other reviews on this page other than my support of this documentary. It should be compulsory viewing in schools and every household across the country. Fame, celebrity, "success", the media and its stars are the biggest spiritual and emotional cancer ruining lives in the modern world. Wake up, watch this and have your worst fears confirmed.

A must see. I disagree with some viewpoints, but overall I found it brilliant and brave. I also figured out I was a star sucker myself and got out of that bad habit.

Very topical, especially for those who are interested in what Lord Leveson has said about the Press. I found the first part, which deals with children in showbiz, rather tedious but after that the film becomes much more interesting and deals with the dishonest way that news stories are gathered and presented to us. An important and very worthwhile piece of work.
