Shocked and amused by a young paparazzi

Performances do not have to be loud to be riveting

Teenage Paparazzo: You will never look at social media the same way again.
Teenage Paparazzo: You will never look at social media the same way again.

The documentary Teenage Paparazzo starts with Adrian Grenier of Entourage being shocked and amused by a young paparazzi who is terrifying good at his job. Their awkward friendship springboards into an exploration of the young man’s life and our society’s obsession with celebrity. More importantly it discusses our culture’s growing addiction to “para-social” relationships and the issues it can cause. You will never look at social media the same way again.

The Oscar-nominated Spotlight is a master class on how performances do not have to be loud to be riveting. It centers on the Boston Globe team that uncovered the Catholic Church’s pedophile scandal. The wonderful ensemble cast includes Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton. It reminds us that reporters who care about being right instead of first can provide us all with an invaluable service.

  • Spotlight (USA) 2015, Universal
  • Available on Amazon Video and YouTube

Hey! I met that kid (we worked briefly in the same agency).

I also heard I'm in that movie twice... Never seen it though. I was on camera when I met Grenier and he came say hi to my brother and me. Fun times.
