There were actually 2 ‘Facebook movies’ last year, the more famous one being “The Social Network”. The less famous one is this, “Catfish”. No, this is not a movie about the founding of Facebook, but a documentary about some people who use Facebook, and the questions of identity that comes with it. Ever wondered whether that hot girl or guy you’ve been chatting with on Facebook is real? If your answer is yes, well this movie will be perfect for you.
Some people have questioned whether this is a ‘real’ documentary or not (because it really does play almost like a thriller), but since the filmmakers have insisted that it’s real, we’ll take their word for it. The DVD is out now, and you can find it from you-know-where. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
