Movie Info

Many may believe that the hobo is a relic of a bygone era, a mere stereotype popularized by depression-era comedies, and it's this preconception director Sarah George aims to shatter with her documentary Catching Out. Its title derived from the slang term for hopping a ride on a train, the film chronicles the lives of hobos continuing to catch rides on trains all over the United States. George herself hops some trains, encountering such individuals as Jessica, an ever-transient young woman, and Lee, an environmentalist and avid camper.

Critic Reviews for Catching Out

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (2)

  • Ultimately, the film is as numbingly boring as, well, a lengthy train ride during which there's nothing to do but look out the window.

    Aug 21, 2003
  • When focusing on its four main subjects, Catching Out is an absorbing, picturesque group portrait.

    Aug 21, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • George's portrait of hobo lives gets stuck in self-absorption.

  • Vicariously relays the intoxicating fusion of railway rhythms, the poetic thoughts of these nomadic philosophers, and the continuous enchanting flow of majestic landscapes that the most elaborate hi-tech special effects would find difficult to match.

  • In letting her subjects speak for themselves, George does a good job of exploring the lure of the road, or in this case the rails.

    Aug 23, 2003 | Full Review…
  • It's a unique and fascinating film.
