As I said right after Sundance, the trick to reviewing, talking about, or in anyway promoting Catfish is how to make you understand how great it is without giving anything away. Much like there tag-line in the poster above “don’t let anyone tell you what it is” — the things that makes this film stand apart is the journey that both you and the filmmakers take together, knowing to much both destroys both the intention of the film and your experience. If there is anyway for me to convince you to just wait for the films release on September 17, 2010 without watching the trailer below than stop reading now (you can even read my “review” on about the film that doesn’t talk about it).

But if that’s just not enough for you greedy reader… With all that being said, the film that should never have a trailer has a trailer — apparently people have to find out about it somehow! So if you need more in order to buy a ticket, check out the trailer below…

A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.
