Quentin Tarantino called Big Bad Wolves ‘the best film of 2013’. Quite understandably. This revenge thriller has the necessary Tarantino-esque elements: meandering dialogues alternating between macabre humour and absurdism, plenty of ultraviolence, a neat game with genre conventions, perfect styling and an opera-like soundtrack that ups the drama even more.
Big Bad Wolves' point of departure is a series of child murders culminating in the arrest of timid religious education teacher Dror, an unlikely suspect who is released due to police incompetence. However, the father of Gidi, the last victim, wants revenge. This brings him into conflict with detective Miki, who has opened his own no-holds-barred hunt for Dror.
Big Bad Wolves is often reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, but is also an explicitly Israeli film. The paranoia of a people perpetually at war invades everything. A film inhabited solely by wolves.
