Film critic and author Schickel examines the ""celebrity system'' that pervades popular culture and judges that it has, among other things, confused the realms of public and private life, encouraged fantasizing at the expense of reason, and trivialized and simplified complex issues. ``Provocative, disturbing and often brilliant,'' PW commented.
