  1. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    A South African film made for black people during the years of apartheid, Fishy Stones is a lightweight, fun film that makes up for MANY shortcomings with enthusiasm and a rough & ready charm.

  2. Monkey Flix's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    It's stupidly simple and has flickers of entertainment value on that level. The problem is that the "comedy" between the two crooks is incredibly tedious.

  3. klofter's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    This is why I love Mubi. Where else would I ever get to see a gem like this? Is it a good movie? Not by any stretch of the imagination. But I had an excellent time watching it. Very interesting knowing the history behind it...

  4. T.h. Marvelsteins's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    Low budget? Very. Random, unrelated disco musak library music? Check. Over simplified narrative? A child could write better.. And yet .. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, its' familiar genre and yet very unfamiliar setting. It is made with charm and some economic finesse (see car chase and opening credits) Loved the two villains and the fact that this film was made at all (and then curated) Bravo to all involved!

  6. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    Yeah, it's a bad movie. But it's a "good" bad movie. A "B-Movie" - sometimes called a "Z-Movie" from South Africa. Made "underground" during Apartheid for the masses, these films were thrown away and then rediscovered and released. Not an original story, but it's interesting seeing the film knowing the historical context in which it was made. I applaud the effort of these actors and filmmakers and enjoyed this flick.

  7. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    Question: How could those two idiots ever escape from prison? Don't mind, it's funny to listen to the dialogues. By the way: Writing the text inserts of the main title on a typewriter is a very cheap, but nonetheless great idea.

  8. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Fishy Stones

    Imagine a porn studio was in charge of making a heist movie for $3,000? I really enjoyed watching this because it's something that I would never watch normally. You can tell this was not made for avid movie watchers since the characters explain everything they are thinking about. This has a cultural anthropology aspect to it and you should watch it. Heck, I think you'll have a good time.
