Wolf (2021) - Movie Review

The Movie: Wolf

The Director: Nathalie Biancheri

The Cast: George MacKay, Lily-Rose Depp, Paddy Considine, Eileen Walsh

The Story: A high-concept arthouse drama about a boy who believes he is a wolf.

The Review:
So, this is a movie. I'm not exactly sure what it is beyond that but it is definitely a movie. I mean things were happening on screen and people were talking and going on about other things but I'm not sure if any of it made any sense. I get that this is an exploration into the psychology of people who think they are animals but after introducing the idea, director Nathalie Biancheri doesn't really do much with it. Seriously nothing of any significance happens over the course of the movie.

What I did like is the indictment and examination of how people with perceived mental health conditions are often railroaded through a system intended to "fix" them but often misunderstands what the person is actually going through. In this respect, the story does a great job of showing how dangerous this type of system can be and especially when the treatment is completely off base and even abusive. Just because someone exhibits behaviors or has beliefs that don't agree with our own, doesn't mean we can beat it out of them.

The Verdict:
Wolf is a very strange movie that I don't entirely understand and didn't find entertaining in any way. I hope you have a better experience if you choose to watch it.
