CATFISH ( PG)
Stars: Yaniv Schulman, Ariel Schulman
Director: Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman
HOOKING up online or via Facebook can be fraught with deception – deceptions that became all too real for the filmmakers of this doco. It follows a photographer in New York who is contacted through the social media by an artsy family on the other side of the country. He befriends them and even falls in love with one of the family members. But not all is as it seems and so he sets out to find the truth. The facts are sketchy here but watching this unfold is mesmerising. Extras: ★★★½ Filmmaker’s interviews, featurette and deleted scenes.
