Critic Reviews for Childstar

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Mike Goldbach wrote Childstar in 2004; this is his first feature as writer-director, and it's nimble and full of visual tricks, funny and sexy, yet somehow a suspenseful thriller.

McKeller has crafted a sweet, witty film without employing cliche characterizations and pat plot points.

A pointless film about pointless people.

McKellar's starring turn -- along with a strong final scene -- help him save his own film from the unfortunate crap heap
