Product Details

Product Description


The ever-underrated director Robert M. Young (Dominick and Eugene) made this tense variation on The Postman Always Rings Twice. Edward James Olmos and Maria Conchita Alonso star as a long-married couple who run a fish store. When a young drifter (Arie Verveen) enters their lives as an employee and inhabitant of their home, he and Alonso commence an affair made all the more dangerous when the couple's creepy son (Steven Schub) moves back in. The ensuing Oedipal competitiveness grows to an explosive finale, and while the mythic underpinnings of the story may be a bit obvious, the film moves as fluidly and is as involving as any of Young's fine work. Lots of suspense, a richly noiresque tone, and terrific acting on everyone's part, particularly Schub. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars suberb acting and overall great film Aug. 1 2003
This is an intense and believable erotic-thriller about a couple - perfectly cast with Edward James Olmos and Maria Conchita Alonso - whose world is rocked by the virtual adoption of a stranger, the return of their twisted son and an opportunity to sell their fish store for a $1 million.
A great story, top notch direction by Robert Young and absolutely superb acting from the entire cast. Most memorable is the stellar performance by Steven Schub as the estranged, Oedipal and borderline psychotic son. Clearly a 'method' actor extraordinaire, it is frightening to imagine what he must have gone through personally (he can't be like that in real life!?!) to prepare for this role.
Who is this Steven Schub and what else has he been in? It is immensely gratifying that at least occasionally Hollywood casts a real actor and gives us a freakin' break from humdrum Matt Damon and pretty boy Ben Affleck - aarrrgh. Hey Kevin Smith, hey Scorsese, find this Schub guy and sign him up!

5.0 out of 5 stars under-rated masterpiece July 30 2003
The Postman can just keep on ringing because I am caught by CAUGHT-a movie which unfortunately slipped under the radar when originally released except for Janet Maslin's rave in the NY Times. Now out on DVD, it is an enter-taining sexual thriller set in the worlds of fish markets and standup comedy that rewards repeat viewing with it's subtle layers of complexity. After ten times, I am still finding something new. While the film works as a Cain-like sexy thriller, it also aspires to a higher level of exploration of the human heart as the writer, director and cast reveal the desire and pain of richly-portrayed characters. Maria's great and Olmos is too, but my favorite is Steve Schub whose amazing performance as Danny Dime should have advanced him to the A-list. Everyone should demand to see more of this talented young actor. Meanwhile, if you are looking for a great new dvd, just cast your fish net out and catch CAUGHT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensual and intriguing, a rare and flawless film July 29 2003
By Sue
I'm so glad this film is out on DVD! I first saw it on cable a couple of years ago, and can't resist watching it every time it is shown. Like all classic movies, "Caught" holds your interest from beginning to end. Its is both genuinely sexy and suspensful, as well as a fascinating portrait of a family stretched to its limits. How refreshing to see a film where such intelligence and artistry was put into the script. The acting is first rate all around.The chemistry between Maria Conchita Alonso and Arie Verveen is incredible, and Steven Schub gives a remarkable performance as the edgy son. Olmos is flawless as the husband. Such a great movie. I recommend it highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught July 28 2003
"Caught" caught me by surprise. It was so brilliantly executed and the cast was magnetic. It kept me on the edge of my seat from the beautiful under water opening to the chilling end. If you like intelligent, sexy thrillers, then I advise you to get "Caught" up!!!!
