“Not only is this the best film [at the Busan International Film Festival], this is the best film of the year,” Quentin Tarantino declared last fall, and just like that, the profile of Israeli thriller “Big Bad Wolves” got raised immediately. The best part, is that the film deserves the praise. Our own Drew Taylor called the movie “bold, beautifully told, and surprisingly funny” in his review from the Tribeca Film Festival, and now we’ve got a lengthy clip from the movie so you get a sense of what impressed both Tarantino and our own staff.
Directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the revenge thriller follows detective Miki (Lior Ashkenazi) who stops at nothing in chasing down Dror (Rotem Keinan), a suspected child killer. But there’s one other person in the mix, the mysterious Gidi (Tzahi Grad), who also wants to get his hands on the killer. And in this exclusive clip, we watch Gidi buy a new house but make a very specific and eerie request of the realtor. Needless to say, he’s got his own sinister plans in the works.
“Big Bad Wolves” is now playing in limited release or you can order it up on VOD. Watch below.
