Synopsis from Magnet:
A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: the father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law, and the main suspect in the killings - a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.
Who will find an audience in Big Bad Wolves? Fans of Tarantino's work and influence should enjoy the picture just about as much as he said you would. It may not be your number one, but it should be in a top twenty (to give some wiggle room). It's a deranged movie filled with exquisite scenes of gruesome torture that, while not innovative, will last in your mind. Traumatizing but not gratuitous. All the extreme violence you will see is necessary. Think of the things you don't want done to your body. Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado will show them to you. The goddamn blow torch scene was the first thing I thought of upon waking this morning. It's memorable in a way you truly don't want a scene to be memorable. Well orchestrated physical effects round out the sick spinnings of warped filmmakers' minds. How far would you go to uncover the wicked murder of a child? Not as far as these fellas I can assure you.
With a twist and sting that will elate the viewer, the pay off for Big Bad Wolves is absolutely worth your time. Remember that there are multiple ways to be shocked by a film. There are multiple ways for a movie to get under your skin. It's not always about the bombastic C-4 level explosions of movies like A Serbian Film. Sometimes it's the quiet, surgical detonation that yields the great damage. I highly recommend this picture especially on this damn beautiful Blu-ray release. If it takes awhile to wind up and get interesting, I assure you that the whole thing pics up the pace about a third of the way through, and you won't have watched it all just to see a movie that you've watched over and over again. The hype isn't hype at all but genuine resounding praise for a good second effort by talented fellas from
Israel (It has subtitles, but don't let that stop you horror-verse).
