Storyline

In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue. Written by Universal Pictures

Catfish Review
11 November 2019 | by felipepm17See all my reviews

The documentary that launched a franchise. Some things were not fully explained in the end, but it is a great documentary. As the story unfolds, you can kinda guess what the "twist" is, but when the secret really comes out, it turns out to be MUCH more complex than it seemed.
