By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Catfish is a 'documentary' about Yaniv 'Nev' Schulman, a young, budding New-York photographer. Three months after one of Yaniv's photos is published in the New York Sun he receives a package from Michigan-based, 8-year old, child-prodigy Abby Pierce containing a painting of his photo. Taken aback by the quality of the work and generosity of the artist, he befriends Abby via Facebook in a completely innocent and benign way as they exchange photos and canvas.

Always on the lookout for interesting subject material, Yaniv's brother Ariel decides to document their electronic relationship as it progresses as Yaniv talks to Abby's mom Angela, her half-sister Megan and a few other friends in her life. Yaniv falls for Megan hard after an extended online relationship and is desperate to finally meet her. Alarm bells begin to ring after Megan becomes evasive and certain things she has told him do not tie-up. Yaniv decides to confront Megan by showing up at her house unannounced with extremely interesting results...

Putting the controversy aside about whether Catfish is real or staged, it's an amazing story nonetheless which I won't ruin for you by disclosing the plot. I was captivated for the full 86 minutes as the tale is told through shots of Yaniv's Googlemaps, Facebook messages, text back-and-forths and phone calls. It's edgy and well filmed, despite the majority being shot on handy-cams and I honestly felt involved enough with the story to understand what was going through Yaniv's head as his brother and friend ask him for his POV on what's going down.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

In 2007, a photographer in New York City, Nev Schulman, was surprised to receive a parcel in the post containing a painting. It was a painting of a picture of his that had been published in The New York Sun some weeks earlier, and the artist was apparently only eight years old. Intrigued, Schulman began corresponding with Abby, the artist, online under her mother Angela's supervision. His brother Ariel and friend Henry, amateur film-makers, smell a potential good story here and begin filming Nev's interactions with Abby's family by phone and computer. Nev also comes into contact with Abby's family members via Facebook, particularly her 19-year-old sister Megan, whom he starts 'Internet dating'. Since the family live many hundreds of miles away in Michigan, the chances of meeting them soon do not appear to be likely.

Whilst working on a project in Colorado, the trio start to find holes in the story presented to them. Megan, who sings and plays guitar and piano, sends Nev some songs she's recorded, but he finds that they are recordings of songs from YouTube. Googling reveals no mention of Abby's artistic skills in local media. Nev becomes concerned over being scammed, and they decide to detour to Michigan on the way home to learn the truth.

Catfish is an interesting film that was released last year after proving a storm at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It then triggered a significant wave of controversy, though we'll come to that in a moment. It's easy to see why the film has been praised: it's a zeitgeist-capturing movie about people who forge relationships online where the details presented by the parties involved may be exaggerated or indeed fabricated altogether.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catfish - Internet dishonesty 5 April 2013
By Tweety
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this dvd so much that I have continued to watch the series on Mtv. Nev and his friend Max are great people who try and help others reveal any relationship dishonesty or fake people with fake internet profiles. What is so disappointing about the world we live in nowadays is that people can lie so easily and mislead others into falling in love with who they think is the person they're talking to over the web ether. Fake pictures, fake families, most of their profile make-up is fake. What's so bad about being honest? Yes, okay, people have self-esteem/other issues but what's the point of lying....too many people get hurt in the process just to make yourself feel better at the time. And then one little lie becomes one huge lie, and there's no going back then.

When the people do finally meet up, invariably they still manage to sustain some kind of relationship, and that's once the truth has finally come out. It's so heartbreaking watching the genuine person who's fallen in love with 'their' catfish to finally meet up and see the truth for what it is. Ultimately Nev was the first person to get hurt by falling in love with a Catfish and he certainly won't be the last.

I would recommend this to anyone who uses online relationship engines to meet single people in the hope of building up a relationship or finding a companion.....the truth is quite shocking.
