Catfish starts out with New York photographer Nev Schulman, filmmaker brother Ariel and friend Henry making a film about an 8 year-old girl named Abby from Michigan, who painted an immaculate picture of one of Nev's photographs. The painting is mailed to Nev, and soon a friendship is born. Nev starts talking to Abby's mother, Angela, and her half-sister Megan. They all have Facebook pages, and soon Nev begins Facebook relationships with all three. His friendship with Megan, a pretty blonde twenty-something, escalates into sexually charged exchanges, and he starts to really care for her. What happens next is a sheer surprise and this funny, clever and lovable little documentary becomes a fascinating, breathtaking, heartbreaking, edge-of-your-seat look at human nature in our digital age.

falsely advertised as suspenseful, thriller, jaw-dropping... none of which is remotely true. Just a very pretentiously constructed mockumentary about a frumpy hick housewife who creates a phony online profile. The big "shocker" is that a woman like that would present herself online as a gorgeous young hottie, and pretend that her fairly decent paintings were actually done by an eight-year-old. That's it! The main characters suspect early on that this might be the case, eliminating the one chance of any tiny bit of surprise. A real drag and a complete waste of time.

Interesting, well-put together, full of intrigue, and much grace we can all learn from! The flimmalers did a good job, and they are very watchable! I recommend it!

I found this movie very underwhelming. I was on the edge of my seat for a while, but I thought the ending was disappointing and was left wanting something more.

*This is NOT a horror movie, despite what the trailer may imply.*
