Catfish (2010)


Directors: Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman
Starring: Ariel Schulman and Yaniv Schulman

Nav a photographer from New York starts getting paintings of his picture from a young girl Abby. After getting a few more pictures Nav getting into the friend of the family position with phone calls and facebook conversations chatting to the mom Angela Dad Vincent and most importantly older sister Megan. Thinking he might be falling for Megan the older sister he decides to take a chance and go and meet this family with his brother and other room mate. What will happen when he gets there? how true as the people he has been talking too?

Shot in the form of a documentary following Nav on his relationship trip we are talking on a patient journey of deception. This film will keep you wanting to see what will happen and shows how easy it is to fake something through the likes of facebook.

Made on a very small budget of just over quarter of a million dollars this is one indie movie worth watching for anyone who craves an original story. it has a really feeling about how it is shot giving us the audience a chance of a true story unfolding on front of us.

My rating for this movie is a 8/10
