An Aging Fisherman Becomes Intimate With An Increasingly Human Lobster

No, the short film Caterwaul isn't a tale of bestiality, but it is one of a strange relationship between a lonely fisherman and the lobster he decides to take home one day. Even as the lobster longs for the sea and becomes increasingly un-lobster-like, the man can't bear to part from his crustacean companion.


Caterwaul was written and directed by Ian Samuels, and despite its bizarre premise, it's a very contemplative film, about loneliness, the the decisions we make for other beings, and the effect that humans have on the world around us. Give it a watch.
