Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"A smart, noteworthy socio-cultural snapshot, $ellebrity evinces a surprising depth."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Generally speaking, $ellebrity is informative, unblinkered and smart."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"A numbing viewing experience that's oddly constructed and a touch too sanctimonious to take seriously, eventually coming to blame the viewer for the ills of the tabloid industry."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"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
"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
