A story of reality, sadness, and deception, catfish was an unknown quantity to me that sent me to sleep at the beginning, before providing a relatively gripping ending with its potentially blunt perception of today's society. Focusing on one individual who enters the online web involving Facebook and dating, the lead character becomes fascinated with his new contact, and all their family. One was a young artist who's work at such a young age was nothing short of astounding, another was an attractive model who's looks would captivate any male, and the other main acquaintance was the mother of the two; Angela, who most often picked up the phone and was the main point of conversation. Due to the distance, meeting the individuals often looked unlikely, until our lead, and his friends were in the area one day and decided to pop in to put intrigue to rest. What they found was a shocking (but true) discovery that would serve as a warning to anyone on social media or online dating. As much as this had an interesting message and a realistic storyline, it's low budget production and the slow introduction made this very difficult to get drawn into at first. There's next to no action as such, and is more of a documentary than a movie. I wouldn't say it's hard hitting, but it certainly gets its point across about the dangers of today's world, and has an interesting take on the psychology behind certain people's minds. I'm never a fan of films made entirely from the third person viewing mode as it makes it very shaky and unprofessional, regardless of how natural it may be. This isn't going to be a lot of people's cup of tea, and nor was it particularly mine. Having said that, it is a thinkers film, or one who is interested in the dynamics of the human brain. I wouldn't watch this again, as it solely represents a sign of our times, and serves as a warning message for all computer geeks out there.
