Starsuckers (2009)

This is an excellent documentary to watch and share. You'll never look at the media the same way again.

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 by the same team behind BAFTA nominated Taking Liberties, it will be released in cinemas on the 30th October - unless Rupert Murdoch shuts us down first. Or Max Clifford. And perhaps Bob Geldof.

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. It shows how truth has become a distant memory in the modern news and climaxes with a shocking and startling revelation of just how bad things can get when we let entertainment reach out into politics and charity.

The first rule of working in the media is - do not critisise the media. Well, we've decided to break this golden rule, and if we ever work in this town again we won't have done our jobs properly. A film so controversial it will never be shown uncut on TV, and will pull the rug underneath a string of untouchables.

I'm starting to see most "entertainment" as manufactured distraction, worthless and actually quite subversive in nature, especially fare geared towards kids.

isn't it crazy?

It really shows how powerful the media is, and how corrupt. I thought it was one of the best documentaries I've seen in years.

I had to post it. This is what we're up against.
