Big Bad Wolves (2013)

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.

Quentin Tarantino called this Israeli comedy/thriller the “Best Film of the Year (2013)”. Well, this isn’t by any means a perfect film, but a twisted and unique piece of cinema.
The subject matter of this one is rather serious: the police finds the headless body of a little girl, who had been tortured and raped before being killed. This horrific scenery sets in motion a violent cycle of revenge where a grieving father takes justice into their own hands.

While the tone is dark and gets very graphic at times, the film have a good balance of unexpected dark humour and gore. With great acting and a thought-provoking script, Big Bad Wolves is a must-see to anybody who appreciates a good black comedy infused with violent, uncomfortable and sadistic torture scenes.
