Movie review of catfish
Hour 2 English
January 24th, 2011
The movie catfish is strange drama. The movie will leave you with Many questions. It is a very good movie about a true story and since it is a documentary the real characters play themselves, or they are filming the movie as it happens so it is a very interesting movie. This is the best drama of the year, and it will keep you on your heals. I think that in many ways it is the most elusive movie I have ever seen as well. If you are into dramas and movies that keep you guessing then this is a movie you must see.
The movie catfish was made in 2007 and was filmed as a documentary by the main characters brothers Ariel Schulman and Nev Schulman. The movie is mostly revolving around an 8 year old girl named abbey. Abby is young girl in upper Michigan and is a famous painter. One of her paintings goes for seven thousand dollars. The movie is very perceiving and is very well hidden from the truth of what actually happens.
The main characters in the movie are Nev, Megan, Abby, Arial, Angela and the camera crew. The character that brings the most of the movie to life is Megan. In the movie Nev is super interested in Megan and wants to have a relationship with her. Arial is Nev’s brother and the director of the movie. Angela is Abby and Megan’s mother. Abby is the key part to the movie and if there was not an amazing artist like her then there would not be a movie called catfish.
I feel like a key turning point in the movie was when Nev finally found out that Megan was not who she said she was and she was actually not an artist or a dancer. Megan actually was not a person at all but in fact she was the mother of Abby, how messed up is that? Angela was texting and emailing Nev the whole time posing as her make believe 19 year old daughter. Angela was the one who was painting the pictures and selling them to make it seem like her 8 year old Abby was painting them.
All in all if you are interested in a movie that will keep you guessing and keep the real truth from you, then this is a must see movie of the year if it falls into your category of movie. This is a good movie for people who live on their computer. Anything can happen to you and the chance increase of this happening to you if you are a person like Nev. If you get involved with the internet and the people on it, you might just have a not so pleasant run in with people. Also since people are not face to face they might lie and not tell the truth. So this is a very educational movie.
