I saw this movie ages ago at the video store, rented it, and was blown away. It's one of those films that reminds you never to cheat on your spouse! But like another reviewer said, the wife's son is so wicked that you can't help but blame him for the family's demise. The wife and lover happen into this affair naturally-- how could they resist?

This chilling family picnic is the most memorable scene.

This is a great indie film that reminds you not to act on every desire because there are prices to pay.

One of the few 5 star films. If you see it, you'll agree how good it it. It is dumbfounding how a movie like this is so unheard of. I wonder what other films are out there that are awesome that I don't know about.

(One False Move and Bound are two movies not a lot of people have seen that are excellent too!)

"Caught" is an Independent movie filled with so much sin that the viewer will feel as if, they too, should ask for forgiveness--

Arie Verveen as the drifter whom appears to be at the wrong place at the wrong time--or if one values adultery, lies, and deception, the right place at the right time.

(Maria Chonchita Alonso) is superb as the gorgeous seductress--The older woman whom leaves (Edward James Olmoes) snoring in bed as she wraps her still beautiful body around the younger man. The sex is so wild it is a wonder Olmoes did not hear them--in the shower, closet, bathroom.

But--to me, the most brilliant role is played by Alonso's son--Steven Schub. There is something so absolutely wicked about him, so evil, the viewer will blame him for the trangressions of the family, instead of the mother.

During a picnic, he sticks his feet in his mother's lap pretending to be her lover--she does not know this until her lover stands to stretch--The look on Alonso's face is unbelievably cold as she rips his feet off of her skirt...

One can only walk with the devil so long--but soon his long nails scratch, destroy, and kill. The sins of the mother will cause the entire family to catch fire, and there is no stopping the flames once they are ignited.

Hell is waiting around the corner...

***One of the most intelligent,astonishing Independent films I've watched in a long time***

Highly recommended****

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!

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.

Maria Conchita Alonso has been a favorite actress of mine since I saw her in the movie "Moscow on the Hudson" with Robin Williams many years ago. She is wonderful in this movie as well. I have seen this movie in its full glory on the pay channels and in its censored version, which is not as great, on Bravo. I am purchasing it today from amazon.com so I can watch it whenever I want in its uncensored state! The scene at the beginning where "Joe" is teaching his new employee how to check for bones in a cleaned fish is one of the most sensuous of the entire movie. I highly recommend this movie! As they say in the fishing industry, it's a keeper!

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!
