STARSUCKERS (dir. Chris Atkins) The only beef I have with the film is its unfortunate title, however this clever and informative documentary shows how 'The News and Infotainment Industry' has morphed into such an overwhelming behemoth that it now controls and commands nearly all aspects of life in the 21st century.
Although the science of the film might be a bit questionable, the film's conclusions are undeniable. Misdirection and hypnosis by the media have convinced the weakest and most gullible that regardless of talent, background, or education, they have a god-given and constitutionally protected right to succeed in life, and an entire industry is poised and ready to sell them this wholly unrealistic and delusional point of view.
The section of the film that dealt with parents who, against all odds, insist that their remarkably ordinary children are 'reality stars' of the future was particularly revealing albeit depressing. Also the documentary demonstrates how the News Media has all but capitulated, and we have now become a 'post-truth' society. It's no longer of any importance that verifiable facts are presented just as long as the overall message is delivered in an uplifting and entertaining manner. Fact checking is for suckers, and this is why Sarah Palin (and others like her) can entertain hopes of becoming world leaders.
Citizens of planet Earth have devolved into 'Believers' instead of 'Thinkers', and it was most certainly NOT a natural process. MUST SEE
