Catfish (2010)

“It takes somebody that appreciates the art…”

A photographer from New York, is flattered when a gifted child hundreds of miles away begins to paint his work. With his filmmaking friends a documentary of their relationship is born and we join them on their journey as he is also attracted to Megan, the elder sister. Yet all is not what it seems and we soon learn Megan is far from who she claims to be…

Who do we give our trust to? How much of our online life is genuine? In our ‘modern’ age we are so plugged in to our virtual lives that we rarely take time to consider the face behind the profile.

What if the person you thought was your friend, was really paid to monitor your behavior? Could you tell if a person was pretending to be of the opposite sex? How much of your life would you give to a stranger?

    Great discussion about a really interesting movie. It was quite tragic, indeed. The story sneaks up on you and you realise that you’re much more invested in these people than you thought you were initially. A worthwile film.

    Thanks for the film tip, this one would have passed me by. I did some reading up first and then watched it before the podcast. I ended up nearly tearful at the end of it, its quite a roller-coaster of emotions. Awesome podcast guys, a great analysis. While I was watching the film, the title slipped right to the back of my mind as it has nothing to do with catfish until vince’s talk.

    For me this podcast has been about discovery of things beyond the surface of films. Also sheds light on films that one may not think to even watch or consider in regards to alternate thinking. Yet “behind the curtain” seems to always inspire and always touch some form of reality through movies.
