    Re: Catfish

    I haven't yet, but I thought it was fictitious story shot in a documentary style - like The Blair Witch Project. Regardless of it's validity, this one is definitely on my must-see list as it sounds like a really entertaining psychological-thriller.

    Less of a thriller, more of a psychological movie. Don't let the previews fool you. While intriguing, it left me unimpressed.

    I had never heard of it and picked it up at Redbox, if it isn't a documentary it's less interesting.

    Re: Catfish

    In an interview Ariel Schulman related that some viewers believe Catfish to be a fake documentary, a hoax: Morgan Spurlock, director/star of the documentary Super Size Me, walked up to the producers of the film during one of its initial screenings and told them "it was the best fake documentary he had ever seen". Comedian Zach Galifianakis also has stated that he does not believe the events in the film to be true.[7]
    The Schulman brothers and Joost stand behind their original statements: the film is "100% true"[7] and it tells the story exactly how it happened. They also chalk up the perfect timing of every narrative element in the movie to just coincidence and sheer luck. Ariel Schulman has stated that
    "It felt [too perfect] to us also, as we were making it. We're very lucky. We look back at our experience and everything leads to [the moment we discovered things were not what they seemed]. As filmmakers we were ready; we felt like we spent our lives preparing to be ready, and it just happened to be me who shares the office with my brother and my producing partner."[7]

    Re: Catfish

    Along the same lines as fake documentaries, I would recommend Street Theif to everyone. I saw it thinking it was true and it was amazing. I have heard it wasn't real though, however I haven't looked up to find out.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I watched Catfish last night. I kept saying "What the ****?" for the last 40 minutes of it. In the end, I am not entirely shocked that this happened. Especially with how easy you can do things on the internet these days.

    Re: Catfish

    Watched an investigative show about it (can't recall the name) where they interviewed the people involved. Not what I thought it was about and was disappointed. From the trailer I watched on-line I thought it was based on scary events. Not so.


    There was one?
