Never Cry Wolf

Carol Ballard, 1983 (8.3*)
Autobiographical film of biologist Farley Mowat, based on his memoirs, and played by Charles Martin Smith (American Graffiti) in a rare dramatic part. Mowat studied caribou and wolves in the British Columbian tundra of Canada to see if wolves were wiping out the caribou, with surprising findings.

Not packed with action, but there's one terrific scene of Mowat running naked with a caribou heard, and another where he and a male arctic wolf mark his territory. This is a gorgeous nature film, with beautiful cinematography by Hiro Narita, Oscar nominated sound.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
