Proof Catfish is genuine?

Image

View #2: It’s “real” in the ways described below but after looking at it a couple of months down the line and with less emotion I am unfortunately leaning towards those that suggest exploitation. I now think Nev, his brother and friend, Angela, her husband and Amy all knew everything and the only people who didn’t were her disabled sons. I wish the evidence didn’t stack up so overwhelmingly towards this point but unfortunately it does and I don’t know if I could watch this movie again with this in mind.

Ok so 1. I know this isn’t about music but I’ve been uninspired and this movie inspired me. 2. If you haven’t seen this movie, do. You’ll dig the hell out of it.

So this movie captured my imagination the way great movies do and gave me lots of stuff to research, which I also love doing because I have an inquisitive/obsessive personality (:

I can either say 100% that Catfish is genuine. Or a needlessly elaborate hoax.
