There’s no denying the bombshell nature of The Wolfpack, but my problem is documentary or not, there’s got to be a good plot, that progression and arc of story I keep hammering away at. But there’s a fascination level with this picture. It’s the type of movie — like Beasts of the Southern Wild — that while not a truly great film on an absolute scale, still transports us to a whole new world we’ve never seen before, and thereby stands as a movie not to be forgotten any time soon.
So I give a solid recommendation despite having to answer “where are we going with this?” with “not very far.” And these guys do have good taste in movies. 7/10
