Plot: Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, 'The Wolfpack,'...

This utterly fascinating documentary first made waves at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and it’s certainly one of the most engrossing movies of the year. The film the lives of six brothers who grew up entirely within the confines of a New York City apartment, with movies serving as their only connection to the outside world. As the brothers grew restless in what was essentially a prison (with their father as the warden), they began finding a means of escape by not only watching films over and over again, but literally transcribing the screenplays and then acting out their own versions with costumes and all. The Wolfpack goes inside their NYC apartment as Moselle follows the brothers and their family, delving deeper into their passion for all things film. While the movie falls short when digging into the larger psychological issues at hand when it comes to the boys’ father, it does serve as an interesting (and, admittedly, entertaining) case study of sorts about how a human being is shaped when films are presented as “reality”. Those who grew up obsessively poring over the world of filmmaking would do well to check this one out. – Adam Chitwood
