The Wolfpack

This is for me the best type of documentary, where there is no voice-over trying to explain or manipulate the story, and where the director has taken the sensible decision not to insert themselves into the film at all, leaving the exposition to the subjects themselves.And yet there were a number of occasions where I needed the director to ask more questions because, fascinating as these brothers are, there is so much that’s not said. There’s a much more interesting and darker story lurking beneath the surface of what we actually get to see.

I still found some of the construction of the documentary just a little too convenient, and the final third seemed to pick up the pace then just fizzle out, as if the director couldn’t figure out how to end things.
