This documentary explores the hidden secrets behind a Facebook friendship between a New York photographer and an eight year old girl from Michigan

I picked this movie because I blame my cousin Aaron

What I liked the Most? LOL – this was totally a weird story I could hear some of my friends rambling with

What I liked the Least? OMG – I’m not spoiling it

Review: It is impossible to review this movie with out giving some stuff away so please if you do not want to know anything stop reading now…

First of all, Catfish isn’t a thriller, it’s not a horror movie – it’s a well – it’s a mash up of several different formats including documentary. Yaniv “Nev” Schulman, a New York photographer gets a dance photo published in a major magazine. Soon after he receives a painted version of it in the mail – signed Abby, an 8 year old painting prodigy. Nev starts corresponding with the whole family ~ Mom (Angela), half sister (Megan), Abby, Alex ~ on Facebook, email and ultimately the phone.

I will have to say that the movie scores pretty high with me – I loved the is it a docu/is it a dream/is it a drama/is it a comedy format.

Recommended to: Personally I think everyone in the internet age – hoax or not it’s got a message

Best Quote: “They didn’t fool me. They just told me things and I didn’t care to question them. That’s not fooling.” Or "They used to tank cod from Alaska all the way to China. They'd keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the codfish reached China, the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile. And there are those people who are catfish in life. And they keep you on your toes. They keep you guessing, they keep you thinking, they keep you fresh. And I thank god for the catfish because we would be droll, boring and dull if we didn't have somebody nipping at our fin."
