“ONE OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE DOCS I’VE SEEN ANYWHERE. HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!” –Toronto Star

Movies can change your life, but can they save it? For most people that probably sounds foolish, but the six brothers featured in the astonishing documentary “The Wolfpack” aren’t most people. For much of their lives, these six ingenious young men used the movies to imaginatively if not physically break out of their Lower Manhattan apartment. Even as their father all but imprisoned them, they made great metaphoric escapes by immersing themselves in the fictional realms created by directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino.

The Angulo brothers — now ages 23 to 16 — made their escapes the way many people do, by watching movies at home on VHS and DVD. But they also recreated favorites like “The Dark Knight” using handmade costumes. For them, movies were a form of self-expression as well as a kind of survival.

That makes this warm, disarmingly optimistic documentary sound desperately sad when it’s anything but. Sometimes, all you need is a great subject to make a great documentary. A gifted editor helped in shaping a streamlined chronicle of love and resilience.  --The New York Times
