Customers who bought this item also bought
Starsuckers is a darkly humorous and shocking exposÃ© of the celebrity-obsessed media. It delves into our addiction to fame and blows the lid on the corporations and individuals who profit from it. Directed by Chris Atkins, the BAFTA-nominated director of Taking Liberties, Starsuckers captures the reprehensible behavior of reporters who sell fake celebrity stories to major tabloids and attempt to buy medical records. The filmmakers also sting Max Clifford, who boasts about his clients on undercover camera. When Clifford found out, he hired the infamous law firm Carter Ruck and threatened to injunct the film. Clearly, he did not succeed. The film was given a slew of 4 Star reviews (from the newspapers that dared to review it) and will be out on DVD in the US on September 25th. The DVD includes over 2 hours of extra scenes, including tongue-in-cheek interviews with Kiera Knightley, Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, 50 Cent, Al Pacino, Eddie Izzard and many more.
Starsuckers looks like the work of revolutionaries: a precision skewering of a global epidemic of narcissism. --Mike McCahill, Sunday Telegraph
It's superb. It should be shown in schools. --The Guardian
Probably not since Triumph of the Will have so many dislikable, real-life figures been brought together in one film and it all goes to support my old axiom: business tends to corrupt, showbusiness corrupts absolutely. --Philip French, The Observer
