    A documentary in which George relates their stories with great charm and understanding.
  2. Reviewed by: Phil Hall
    While imperfect, it does provide an intriguing glimpse into a subculture, which many people will be surprised to learn, still exists.
  3. The scruffy, outspoken train-hoppers in Sarah George's exhilarating documentary, Catching Out, are a sure sign that the pioneer spirit still flickers in pockets of TV-wired America.
  4. 60
    Perhaps the only person more enthralled by the romance of train hopping than the latter-day hobos profiled in this great looking documentary from first-time director Sarah George is George herself.
  5. 50
    Catching Out could stand to be half an hour longer, which speaks to both its scruffy charm and its frustrating inability to dig beneath the surface.
  6. Ultimately, the film is as numbingly boring as, well, a lengthy train ride during which there's nothing to do but look out the window.
