I really relate to their relentless passion for film!

'THE WOLFPACK': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Critically acclaimed documentary flick; about seven siblings, six brothers and a sister, that were locked away for fourteen years, by their father, in an apartment in the Lower East side of New York City. Everything they knew, about the world, was learned by watching movies. The film was directed by first-time feature filmmaker Crystal Moselle; who discovered the Angulo brothers, walking down First Avenue (in Manhattan), re-enacting their favorite films. I really enjoyed the movie, and think it's one of the best documentaries in years!

The film tells the story of six brothers (Mukunda, Narayana, Govinda, Bhagavan, Krisna and Jagadesh), and their sister (Visnu), who were locked up in an apartment, in New York City, for 14 years. Their mother homeschooled them, and their father (who had the only key to the place) forbid them from leaving. One day the eldest (Mukunda) escaped; and then courageously explored the city, for the first time, in a Michael Myers mask. He was soon arrested, and sent to a mental hospital; the Angulo siblings' world changed forever, after that day.

The film is beautifully shot, and scored; and it always seems a bit haunting (and disturbing), but ultimately inspiring. I could really relate to the six boys; having grown-up obsessed with movies, and overprotected by my mother. I was also really shy, and socially naive (and still am today); but I also really relate to their relentless passion for film. The scenes of the brothers reenacting all of their favorite movies, are priceless. There's some moral question, of whether the filmmakers exploited these children (in order to tell a great story); and I'm not sure what I think about that. It's still a great movie though!
