Movie Info

In one of the highest adrenaline, most unlikely success stories you'll ever see, Meow Wolf: Origin Story takes us through the meteoric rise of a penniless, anarchic art collective as it attracts the support of George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) and morphs into a multi-million dollar corporation in just a few short years. With the opening of its instantly successful exhibition, House of Eternal Return, the group sets its sights on new exhibits around the world. How does a team of ragtag millennial artists become one of the most compelling new startups of this generation, and what will they do next? Origin Story follows the seven eclectic founding members and hundreds of volunteers as they struggle with fracture, loss, success, and failure over a decade - while constantly redefining themselves and what art can really be. The film is an artistic explosion in and of itself, throwing down a kaleidoscope of color, sound, and music that brings this crazy, highly inspiring ride to life.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

  • Other than showing moments of in-fighting, "Meow Wolf: Origin Story" is an almost entirely positive exploration of the collective and their art - but it's an effective one.

  • As the film slowly builds its momentum into its jam-packed second act before winding down into a languorous finale, its biggest questions still linger. There are no answers, but art helps.

  • Jilann Spitzmiller and Morgan Capps aren't afraid to reveal what really drives these one-time DIY pioneers; by the end of the movie, Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek freely admits he wants to turn it into a billion- dollar corporation. Yay environment!

  • Meow Wolf: Origin Story is pure art. It is inspiring that these group of artists made something out of nothing and in a very literal sense.

    Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • A complex and fascinating look into a convergence of creativity, money, and iconoclasts, Meow Wolf: Origin Story is a tale that to my knowledge has no precedent. And while Meow Wolf might not be to everyone's tastes, they are trailblazers.
