How many friends do you have on Facebook? How many of them have you met? This documentary will really have you thinking about that. The Social Network was a film about the creation of Facebook and now Catfish is a film about the consequences... I think that's even quoted on a poster somewhere and it's true.
***some spoilers ahead. nothing that'll wreck the film for you, but if you want to go into this movie blind, stop reading here***
The film is made by two guys who film their roommate and document a relationship he sparks up with a girl off Facebook. As the story progresses there are certain inconsistencies about her life and he soon realises that he has been caught up in a web of lies. It's actually scary stuff really and it's pretty much a contemporary horror film... As the truth unfolds what was disturbing actually becomes really sad, heartfelt and ultimately moving. Some critics and filmmakers have questioned the authenticity of the film but it doesn't really matter. Whether its real or fake, the outcome is the same. Now... who are you're friends on Facebook again??
