Nice look at both sides
9 March 2013 | by (Santa Clara, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a fun not so little documentary about celebrities and paparazzi. There are several laughs along the way, and you can hear some of the experiences from the celebs mouths.

Other interviewed, are paparazzo, editors, readers of tabloids, and there is a little history lesson about how this all came about and how it used to be "back in the day".

To me it was all very interesting and honest in it's portrayal of how it is the walk the street or step out of your car as a celebrity. They cover people who aim to be stalked by the paparazzi as well as the children of celebs who plead for people to stop taking pictures. In that one moment, where Travis' son was asking to be left alone, it's hard not to feel bad for just witnessing what is being done to this child.

I'm one of those people who have never purchased a celebrity tabloid magazine. I do scan the covers while waiting in obnoxiously long lines at the market and I do now and then click a link about a celebrity, but I have never qu8te understood the people who buy this junk. The kind of people who talk about celebrities when you ask them how they are doing, as if that's their life. I find it a little pathetic.

At no point in the documentary do they explicitly say where the line is overall, and I don't think anybody really knows. Some say it definitely starts with the children, but people want to see little Suri. And sometimes I figure, Katie Holmes wants to show her off. It's hard to know where the line is... but for me, it's not making celebrities' daily activities a part of my daily life. They are just people, after all, and my life has to be more important to me than theirs.
