Movie Reviews

Fun documentary about a fringe community
Dom Miliano | Denville, NJ USA | 04/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My friend insisted I watch this film and even gave me a copy as a present - knowing that I love NYC and funky movies. One night, after dinner, I sat and watched it end to end. I expected to fall asleep half way through it and man was I shocked when it held my attention for the whole film. Basically, it's about people in NYC fishing in the waters around the City. They come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and ethnic backgrounds. Men and women too. Really a diverse group.

I laughed. I learned things I didn't know. I enjoyed it completely. Can't ask more from a documentary can you?

Like NYC and want to see a nice little movie? Give Gotham Fish Tales a try."
