Although The Catcher (Possibly Actually Called The CatcherS) isn't of the best plot, writing, or filming quality, it does keep one interested throughout. I payed over 300 bucks altogether to get this thing and then have it transfered to DVD. I wanted it only for the footage of Piano Red performing, for there is no other film of the man in existence.

Unfortunately, most of the first reel was destroyed in a minor accident, but I do have the last hour or so of the movie on DVD. If you can ever get this movie at a decent price, I recommend it.

If you're a Piano Red enthusiast, I HIGHLY recommend it.
