    A far more trenchant - and funnier - satire of the fame-afflicted than Woody Allen's "Celebrity."

    This small story that tells the much bigger story of the New Economy's bubble and burst is less a documentary than it is breaking news.

    The film has the dog-eared look of a homemade valentine and the improvised sound of '60s jazz, courtesy of a score by Mark Suozzo and a spirited soundtrack including Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar," which might be the film's anthem.
