  1. Just listening. The most brilliant thing about Catfish, I thought, was the way that the title tells you exactly what the film is doing, but that isn’t revealed until the final scene. From Wikipedia:

    “Sitting on his front porch, Vince tells the story that gives the film its name. He claims that when live cod were shipped to Asia from North America, the fish’s inactivity in their tanks resulted in mushy flesh in the Asian markets. Eventually, the fishermen discovered that putting catfish in the tanks with the cod kept them active. Vince feels that people like Angela are catfish, who keep other people active in life.”

    Catfish is what it says on the tin – something to keep our minds active and awake. Great stuff.
