Anyway, Catfish is a documentary that follows Nev, a young man who had an online connecting with effectively a whole family. Having just watched it right now I must say it is one of the greatest documentaries I have seen in a long time. It is full of twists and turns and secrets. To quote the back of the DVD cover:
“Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.”
And I couldn’t agree more.
I came across the film when I was first researching for my dissertation about online communication however I never got the chance to watch it during and I really regret that as it would’ve been a perfect topic. If anyone is researching in online media or Facebook or just have an interest in it, definitely watch this film.
