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.

[T]he result is a beautifully crafted, morally ambiguous fairy tale for the modern age, from two refreshing new voices in Israeli cinema.

Big Bad Wolves is certainly a film that gets its point across in a very satisfying way
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.

Deftly balancing genres, it's a remarkable script that never misses a beat, truly belying the writers' inexperience.

Big Bad Wolves includes a good amount of humor in the dialogue, but never at the expense of the victims or the plot.

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.

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.

We've seen this film before - as recently as in last year's Prisoners - but Big Bad Wolves still manages to feel fresh.

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
One thing that's indisputable about Big Bad Wolves: It's a slick piece of genre craftsmanship, a stylish, drum-tight thriller that magnifies the ugly extremes of crime and retribution.
January 30, 2014
A semi-masterful suspense picture that blends the violent appetites of Chan-wook Park and Quentin Tarantino, pouring such delectable disease into a film that's hypnotic, even as it details unimaginable suffering.
January 27, 2014 engaging yet uneven little revenge thriller.

Unpredictable, with a twisted surprise around each corner, Big Bad Wolves is a clever and arresting shocker.
January 24, 2014
Papushado and his old film prof Keshales are a dynamic duo, their second feature combining natural storytelling instincts, wry humour and slow-burning, edge-of-your-seat excitement.
January 23, 2014
It is an intriguing film with much to admire, but it doesn't always earn its pitch-black attempts at humor.
January 21, 2014
There is something deeply disturbing at the heart of Big Bad Wolves and I mean that in the best possible way.
