Wow what a load of crap!
6 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When there is a lot of controversy, gossip, rumor, claim and other promotion of a person or event, people do 1 of 2 things. They ignore it or give it some attention. But are they invested in what's being promoted through these means?

Typically not! Which is exactly what this documentary fails to acknowledge. They completely ignore the reality of just how much people actually care and jump right into the reality of corporate brainwashing in their actions. That's the truth of these things, there's two realities. The corporate reality and the individual reality. For some reason, these people can't seem to understand this so they make the most obnoxious, arrogant, foundation lacking claims they can.

This really isn't a documentary, it's a propaganda film. They showcase the morons that buy into everything they see on television or read in corporate publications while editing out the population smart enough to read a contract before signing it. This is nothing more than an insult, avoid it at all costs. The film maker set out with the intention of selling a lie while insisting documentary. It's propaganda.

While some are obsessive, most people view celebrities as a novelty when all is said and done.
