    When Cameras Cross the Line

    I thought it was odd that a prime-time documentary should be made about reverse cuts, but I soon realised this documentary has nothing to do with poor camera positioning and bad editing. Yes, it's the latest installment of the celebrity vs paparazzi war.

    This docutainment takes the moral high ground and exposes the evil paparazzi for the parasites they are. Thing is, the entire documentary is little more than a string of paparazzi-sourced shots of unwilling, upset celebrities interspersed with occasional shots of a photographer.

    Oblivious to the irony, the narrator challenges the audience to consider the dubious ethics of stalking celebrities for such footage.

    What a cop-out. If you're going to make a programme exploiting people's private lives, at least be honest about it. Don't pretend you're not part of the problem.

    Too right. Unfortunately in the war between slick media producers and gullible consumers it's no contest. People can easily be fooled with simple mind games like this.
