Ballard and his masterly crew of film makers have reimagined a corner of the natural world...They leave us awed.

Capturing the changes a man goes through as he learns about life in the wilds, Never Cry Wolf is very informative, but it is Smith's performance that makes the film a resounding success.

Measures up to the promise Ballard amply provided in his first feature, The Black Stallion.

For the most part very absorbing, the film suffers from some embarrassingly obvious symbolism.

Perhaps the best thing about the film is that the wolves are never made to seem like strange but cuddly dogs. They look like wolves, not especially threatening but still remote and complete unto themselves.

Set in the Arctic wilderness of Canada where a biologist has a mystical experience of oneness with nature.

If you can get past the lack of significant dialogue then you will find a touching tale of one man's journey -- a journey that can teach us all a little bit about ourselves.

The film is still memorable for its compassion, commitment, and unexpected humor, qualities that go a long way toward tempering the ecological didacticism of the screenplay.
