Tense, twisted, and, oddly enough, startlingly funny. Big Bad Wolves grabs you from the opening and drags you, often kicking and screaming, along for the ride.
November 21, 2019
Unfortunately, ambition, ambiguity and scale prevent Big Bad Wolves from complete success.
October 23, 2019
[T]he result is a beautifully crafted, morally ambiguous fairy tale for the modern age, from two refreshing new voices in Israeli cinema.

Extremely sophisticated in its visuals and in its narrative... if you get the chance to see Big Bad Wolves, eat it up.

Big Bad Wolves is certainly a film that gets its point across in a very satisfying way
June 22, 2019
Big Bad Wolves tries to raise questions about the use of torture and vengeance, but these are questions that have been explored before in far better films.
March 6, 2019
Keshales and Papushado expertly manipulate the moving dynamics of the situation to create an atmosphere in which audience allegiance shifts from scene to scene.
March 2, 2019
There is a sense that Keshales and Papushado's bloody tale falls just short of the mark, arriving somewhat lethargically at a dissatisfying conclusion.
February 28, 2019
Deftly balancing genres, it's a remarkable script that never misses a beat, truly belying the writers' inexperience.
August 21, 2018
Big Bad Wolves includes a good amount of humor in the dialogue, but never at the expense of the victims or the plot.
June 29, 2016
The problem that comes with Big Bad Wolves is that its excessive violence is too intrinsically tied to questions of morality to simply create excuses of "it's just entertainment."

At moments it's fun to watch the psychological drama unfold, and Grad is especially good as the vengeful father, but much of the movie is stomach-churning and visually flat.
August 24, 2015
A dark, captivating, and thoroughly fascinating piece of genre filmmaking.
January 1, 2015
As dark comedies go, this is about as dark as it gets. The acting and stunt work are very solid. I can't say I enjoyed this, but the film is thought-provoking, occasionally funny, and it does raise some interesting moral questions.
December 5, 2014
A grisly off-beat moralistic Israeli thriller about a suspected serial rapist killer being tortured by a cop and the victim's father.
November 19, 2014
We've seen this film before - as recently as in last year's Prisoners - but Big Bad Wolves still manages to feel fresh.
September 7, 2014
Wolves should appeal to fans of filmmakers such as Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino.
March 13, 2014
Despite its impressive intuition, inventiveness and staging, Big Bad Wolves remains a rather forgettable anecdote instead of a truly blood-freezing, Hitchcockian thriller.
February 7, 2014
A suspenseful, violent horror film that touches on the inner lives of sexual predators, the question of guilt and remorse in the human soul, and the practice of torture.
January 31, 2014
Dreary, anti-septic and overwhelmingly glum, marching down a predictable narrative path without much in the way of enlightening ethical inquiry.
