Movie Reviews

Wayne Coyne's Teen Noodling Cult
David Miller | Norman, OK United States | 02/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've lived in Oklahoma all my life and went fishing quite regularly as a kid, but I never heard of Noodling until this film was released. While living a completely different lifestyle than the individuals shown in this film, I was very fascinated by their passion for the sport and the sport itself. Brad Beesley's film shows an entirely different world that most will never even hear of during their lives. I experienced a wide array of thoughts and emotions while watching this film and realized that any sort of passion no matter how seemingly small can be reason to validate one's existence. Also, the film includes some great songs written and performed by The Flaming Lips who never disappoint. Maybe there will be an Okie Noodling II chronicling Wayne Coyne's original thoughts on what Okie Noodling was? Perhaps an extra feature on the "Christmas On Mars" dvd! Watch the Okie Noodling dvd and find out!"
You've got to see it to believe it!

"No fishing poles, line, or lures. These guys stick their hands and arms (even feet!) into these underwater holes and tunnels to grab onto 40-, 50-, 60-pound catfish! You don't have to be a fisherman or even a sportsman to enjoy this documentary. You'll be amazed at their reasoning for doing it, self-deprecating humor, and even the mini-drama that develops over the filming of the movie. Drama over fishing with your hands?! Yeah, no kidding; real high-school style drama comes to light over the 1st Annual Noodling Contest! Oh, and wait 'till you see who wins Miss Okie Noodling! She's a hoot!This is one of those DVDs that you throw on when you have 20 of your friends over for a BBQ and you want to laugh at other people. This DVD is a real gem!"
Eye opening Adventure into Little known Culture

"I recieved Okie Noodling today and watched it through. Absolutely fasinating. I had heard tales of "Hand Fishing" from an old fellow that I used to know - mostly I thought it was a lot of baloney to spin an interesting story. After seeing the movie "Big Fish" it made me think back to these stories that I had heard, and do some research. That is how I came to find this DVD (not advertised or known here in the Los Angeles area!). Interesting from start to finish - I have done plenty of pole fishing in my youth, and catfish frys were common in Florida & Georgia. You have to see this DVD to believe that men would catch huge fish with thier bare hands. I am very happy with my purchase! It's always good to learn something new!"
Fun for the fishermen in your life.

"This movie is fun from start to finish, if there are people in your family who are into fishing this is a must have!
Even people who don't like to fish will find okie noodling entertaining. It is not to be missed."
