Blast 'em

Overview

A descent into the world of freelance celebrity photographers, Joseph Blasioli's documentary focuses on Victor Malafronte as he makes his nightly rounds of New York charity events, premieres, and club openings. Malafronte has two current targets: Michael J. Fox and John F. Kennedy Jr., neither of whom will "pose" for him and his fellow photographers as they arrive at and leave public events.

Overview

A descent into the world of freelance celebrity photographers, Joseph Blasioli's documentary focuses on Victor Malafronte as he makes his nightly rounds of New York charity events, premieres, and club openings. Malafronte has two current targets: Michael J. Fox and John F. Kennedy Jr., neither of whom will "pose" for him and his fellow photographers as they arrive at and leave public events. Malafonte, admitting he's more aggressive than most of his colleagues, begins to stalk Fox and Kennedy, trying to catch them whenever they leave their homes, even if it's to jog in Central Park. The film also features interviews with other photographers, including the Italian veteran whose legendary 1960 encounter with Anita Ekberg (she came after him with a bow and arrow and then kneed him in the groin) inspired the character Paparazzo in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita; hence the term "paparazzi" as the plural term for the packs of these celebrity leeches.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
An insightful if limited commentary on the celebrity-obsessed age, this documentary trolls the vast ocean of hype for its bottom-feeders. Rising up to get his 15 minutes of fame is New York-based photographer Victor Malafronte: a short, profane, relentless man without a conscience. "I have no sympathy for anyone earning 20 or 30 million a year," he responds to a question about his privacy-invading tactics. It's one thing for Victor and his camera-toting pals to gather outside hotels and clubs and theaters hoping to catch a good shot ("face-on is the only way to go"), most of their celebrity targets manage to look slightly perturbed or amused by all those popping flashbulbs. But when Malafronte stakes out Michael J. Fox's apartment building, it's clear he's crossing the line, even though he doesn't have a clue. Unlike a creepy young fan of Madonna who lives to snap photos of his idol while she is jogging, Victor claims he has no intrinsic interest in his subjects. It's about the money, honey, as one photo editor declares, "A picture of Michael Jackson is like currency." Viewed that way, it's possible to see these celebrity photographers as aspiring counterfeiters.
