Critic Reviews for The Amazing Catfish

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8)

  • Writer-director Claudia Sainte-Luce heralds herself as a new talent to watch with "The Amazing Catfish," an outstanding debut of tremendous heart and appeal.

    June 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • If there's a certain depth missing in "The Amazing Catfish," the film brings forth the small-scale pleasures and poignancy of an ambling short story.

    June 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Claudia Sainte-Luce's semi-autobiographical indie has a knack for subverting stereotypes without making a big deal about it.

    June 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This glorious 2013 debut feature by Mexican writer-director Claudia Sainte-Luce takes one of the most shopworn melodramatic premises and makes it feel spontaneous and new.

    April 3, 2014 | Full Review…
  • ... has enough craft and intelligence to render its sentimental story about coming out of one's shell more charming and inventive than one would expect.

    October 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This movie has a lot of personality, its own voice, and it delivers its message straight and direct... maybe a little too direct. [Full review in Spanish]
