FISH: CARTOONING FROM THE DEEP END, we are introduced to the dangerously funny cartoonist as he struggles to stay true to his creativity in a world where biting satiric humor has an ever-diminishing commercial value.

“A stubbornly amiable film about a compulsively provocative talent… Couches the larger issues of modern politics and media in a portrait of an artist almost self defeatingly resistant to compromise.”
— Variety

“There is no more savage yet brilliant wit than that possessed by Mr. Fish, who will never compromise on his deep artistic insight or the outrageous honesty of his social commentary. In a sellout culture he is that rare witness to unfettered truth.”
— Robert Scheer
