Wolf (2021)



Critic Consensus: Despite George MacKay's best efforts, Wolf remains a horror-tinged social allegory that's left to largely chase its own tail.

Movie Info

Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf -- much to the shock of his family. When he's sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of 'curative' therapies. However once he meets the mysterious Wildcat (Lily-Rose Depp), and as their friendship blossoms into an undeniable infatuation, Jacob is faced with a challenge: will he renounce his true self for love.

Critic Reviews for Wolf

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (20)

Despite the impressive performance at its heart, Wolf's off-putting approach still keeps its audience at a remove.

George MacKay, Lily-Rose Depp star in dark fairy tale that handles a real-life condition - believing you're not human - with sensitivity and empathy.

December 3, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

George MacKay's presence and physicality is perhaps one of the most compelling aspects of the film.

December 3, 2021 | Full Review…

But for as much writer/director Biancheri pumps copious ideas into this concept, the solemn tone and lack of thematic focus renders the overwrought outing underwhelming.

December 3, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

What started with a sympathetic gaze promising complexity ultimately succumbs to the messiness of mixed tones and shallow observations, a call of the wild reduced to some tinny, ignorable whimpers.

As the film invites us to ponder the real-world circumstances that it implies, its self-seriousness becomes a double-edged sword.
