‘Catfish’ Trailer Won’t Tell You What It Is

By  · Published on July 30th, 2010

“Blessed with perceptive insight into the Internet age, the rewriting of social rules it has spurred and the new forms of creativity it has inspired, the film is very much a product of the here and now. So the fact that it seems the breakout success from Sundance 2010 comes as no surprise.”

These are the words of our very own Robert Levin, reviewing Catfish earlier in the year up in the snowy forefront of Utah and the little indie festival they’ve got going there.

That breakout success has now officially broken out into the mainstream as it hits limited theaters on September 17th.

So what’s this reality thriller all about? You’ll have to watch the trailer for yourself to be told that you can’t know what it’s about:

Strange name. Stranger subject.

The word on the street is that the film is difficult to explain without spoiling, and from the looks of the trailer, it heads off into left field just in time to freak everyone out.

Ah, young internet love.

Can’t wait for the last 40 minutes.

What do you think?
