Catfish – Movie Review
In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel’s brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.
Catfish is a documentary that will probably make you a little squeamish at the beginning and make you wonder why people are allowed to have video cameras. But after awhile with this film, you get caught up in it, and then you get absolutely compelled by it, and then you get blown away by it. This is a terrific movie, you just have to stick with it for a while, but five stars. I’m not going to tell you very much about it except that it has to do with Facebook, the good news and the bad news, and two people who meet on Facebook and what happens. Five stars.
