Editors Note
Note Love and identity become twisted across the lines of the Internet in this documentary from filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Nev Schulman is a photographer who one day received a surprising e-mail message -- Abby, an eight-year-old girl in Michigan, had seen his picture in a newspaper and wanted permission to paint a portrait from it. Nev gave his OK, and when he was given a copy of the painting, he was struck by how good it was, assuming that the girl was either a genius or a fraud. Nev tried to contact Abby's family, and somehow ended up in contact with Megan, Abby's sexy 19-year-old sister. As Nev fell into an increasingly complicated on-line relationship with Megan, he decided it was time to meet her in person, but when he traveled to Michigan and tracked her down, Nev learned that Abby and Megan's family were not at all what he expected them to be. Ariel Schulman, Nev's brother, began filming his brother's adventures from his first contact with Abby, and in CATFISH he and Henry Joost tell this strange story from beginning to end. CATFISH received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Reviews
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "[This is] the kind of absorbing, twisty cautionary tale that Hollywood pays screenwriters millions to confect." 09/24/2010
Los Angeles Times "CATFISH was built to charm, not indict, and on that front it makes for a diverting seriocomic wade into the pitfalls of Internet-based immediacy..." 09/17/2010
New York Times "CATFISH is a fascinating document, at once glib, untrustworthy and strangely authentic....This is, by far, one of the most intriguing movies of the year." 09/16/2010
A.V. Club "CATFISH is absolutely riveting....What emerges is a tense, more-than-a-little-disturbing study of the relationship between artist and their fans (and between virtual friendships and real relationships)..." 09/16/2010
Hollywood Reporter "Jaw-dropping and surprisingly kind-hearted considering the circumstances..." 01/28/2010
Rolling Stone 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "There's more killer suspense and shocking intimacy in this one-of-a-kind documentary than you'll find in a dozen thrillers." 09/15/2010
Entertainment Weekly "The film is a vérité-style meditation on the construction of personal identity in the age of friending, sexting, and otherwise living life by one's typing thumbs." 09/21/2010
USA Today 3.5 out of 4 stars -- "[A] fresh and intriguing experience....This suspenseful documentary about a virtual friendship could be a companion piece to the upcoming THE SOCIAL NETWORK." 09/16/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "The facts in the film are slippery, but the revelation of a human personality is surprisingly moving." 09/22/2010
Sight and Sound "CATFISH's strength lies in its editing. Visually it integrates ne online media in a way that many films have tried and failed to do." 01/01/2011
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "A cautionary tale for the computer age....The end result is a compulsive, propulsive study of relationships virtual and real." 12/09/2010
Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film nails the social networking zeitgeist -- and its predatory urban myths -- better than any movie in memory." 12/17/2010
Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "[An] exploration of virtual relationships..." 02/01/2011
