Plot Summary

Renowned rock and roll photographer Kevin Mazur has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined, and even demeaned what it means to be famous today. Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of paparazzi, $ellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy. The film captures candid stories of dozens of top stars including Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sheryl Crow, Salma Hayek, and Elton John.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Generally speaking, $ellebrity is informative, unblinkered and smart. – John Anderson, Variety, Jan 9, 2013

Fresh: The nimbly conceived and constructed documentary "Sellebrity" takes a vivid look at the megabucks industry of celebrity photography through a cogent variety of lenses. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jan 11, 2013

Rotten: Mazur miscalculates when he tries to direct viewers' outrage at stars' inability to walk down the street without getting cameras thrust in their faces. – Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, Jan 9, 2013

Rotten: Comes off as little more than a feature-length trashing of colleagues who director and celebrity photographer Kevin Mazur feels are giving his profession a bad name. – Kenji Fujishima, Slant Magazine, Jan 6, 2013

boo hoo rich person

this documentary was pathetic. Celebrities are not speaking out about how crappy my health care is, or how my tap water is polluted. They are upset about their life being inconvenienced? This should show you how disconnected they are from the real world. If I made a documentary about how my children are corrupted by their horrible violent sex filled movies I would be shut down. If I made a documentary on the child labor that is used to make a hand bag that they are given to promote a brand from a company that gives them a ton of money I would be labeled as an idiot. I am an idiot for buying this and I wish Celebrities would just shut up.

Love this movie

This is probably the greatest documentary I've seen in a long time. It's entertaining, understandable, and funny. It has great interviews with a lot of well known celebrities, which is cool because you get to know how they feel about being followed by creeps with cameras.
