Original story 12/09: While Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado‘s revenge thriller “Big Bad Wolves” took home awards from Sitges and won five trophies from the Ophirs, Israel’s version of the Oscars, those honors likely don’t quite beat the feeling one gets when someone like Quentin Tarantino shouts out praise for your film. And that’s just what the filmmaker did earlier this year when he hit the Busan International Film Festival said about “Big Bad Wolves”: “Not only is this the best film in Busan, this is the best film of the year.”
Starring Lior Ashkenazi and Rotem Keinan, the film tells a darkly humorous story centered on Miki, a detective who will stop at nothing in chasing down Dror, a suspected child killer. And certainly, the movie resonated with The Playlist, with our man at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival calling it “bold, beautifully told, and surprisingly funny.” And this exclusive poster for the movie certainly nails down the bold and beautiful part with a pretty wonderful two tone design.
“Big Bad Wolves” opens on January 17, 2014 via Magnet Releasing. Full poster below. Update 12/10: New trailer added.
