Although it's not essential for a filmmaker to insert their own experiences and opinions into a documentary that chronicles the lives of other people, Crystal Moselle's "The Wolfpack" proves to be a confounding exception.
Under the guise of cinéma vérité, Moselle has stitched together a dreamy reverie that, if not a put-on, fetishizes a dangerously dysfunctional situation. Clearly I'm in the minority... but this feels like the worst kind of "noble savage" filmmaking.
Scratching the surface of a story one suspects is a good deal thornier than what's explicitly shown here, Crystal Moselle's The Wolfpack introduces a gang of siblings who have been raised in near-complete isolation in downtown Manhattan.
