    Catfish

    ★★½

    Pretty tough to watch and review this over 10 years since it came out. At the time it was something new and interesting.

    I don't need characters to constantly be speaking, or for them to constantly tell me what is happening or going to happen. The film manages to tell you a lot about what characters are feeling without having…
