You can see this feature having a cult following, and it looks like it does bestow a tiny one. That's all it needs to stay alive and eventually gather momentum. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but Bill Milling's low-budget 'Wolfpack' is a minor, but neatly handled and authentically shot presentation. What the material gathers up is ambitious and thoughtful with its ideas about the forceful influence that sports and politics can emit on a hungry crowd and those who go on to abuse it for self-gain. Underneath this contagiously rowdy spirit, is an ominous charge which in spots manages to unsettle and strike up some intense conflict. The script has some witty moments, and discusses a few interesting texts (Nazism), but predictability and a sappy side (the padded romance sequence) can needlessly creep in. The appealing cast give suitable performances. Tony Carlin is poignantly good as the spearhead / quarter-back of the school and Jim Abele's solid performance works well along side Carlin. Milling's direction is straight-forward, but has some kick to it and the agile camera-work incorporates many swift shots. I have to say I liked how it ended too.
