The Wolfpack

Directed by Crystal Moselle

Six bright teenage brothers have spent their entire lives locked away from society in a Manhattan housing project. All they know of the outside is gleaned from the movies they watch obsessively (and recreate meticulously). Yet as adolescence looms, they dream of escape, ever more urgently, into the beckoning world. A striking documentary work that is evocative of Grey Gardens and Capturing the Friedmans in its look at a barely functioning household, this is a work that is destined to be endlessly debated and discussed. It’s also one of the best documentaries in recent memory.
