Synopsis

In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. 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.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 4th, 2011

The first week of the year and this year starts the same way last year ends, without a whole lot of must have choices. Machete is topping the chart, and it's a good movie, but there are not enough extras on the DVD / Blu-ray to rate as Pick of the Week material. On the other hand, Howl's DVD and Blu-ray are loaded with extras, but the movie didn't live up to expectations with critics. After going over the list for a third time, I have to conclude that there are no Pick of the Week releases this time around. That should change next week. More...

New Releases Fail Inspection on the Per Theater Chart

Again, there was only one film that reached the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart. Inspector Bellamy opened with an average of $10,318 in two theaters. However, Waste Land came very close with $9,806 in its one theater. More...

Inside Doing Its Job on the Per Theater Chart

There were three films to top $10,000 on the per theater chart, all of which were new releases. Leading the way was Inside Job, with an average of $19,825 in two theaters. Considering how important the subject is, I'm certainly glad people are seeing it. Nowhere Boy opened in four theaters with an average of $13,187, while Stone was right behind with an average of $12,628 in six theaters. More...

New Releases were Far from Super on Per Theater Chart

Not a lot of action on the per theater chart this week with only one film, Waiting for Superman, topping $10,000. It managed an average of $12,026 during its second weekend of release, but it also saw significant expansion and by this time next week will have crossed the $1 million milestone. More...

Oscar Potentials Get Hold of Per Theater Chart

There were just two films to reach the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart, but one of them, Never Let Me Go, was pegged as a potential Awards Season player. With an opening average of $27,934, it should expand and that can only help. (The first challenge in earning awards is being seen by enough voters.) Second place went to Catfish with an average of $21,440 in 12 theaters. More...
