Product description

Israeli crime thriller directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado. The film follows the fortunes of three men whose lives become intertwined by a number of grisly murders. Miki (Lior Ashkenazi) is a police detective but he goes well beyond the boundaries of his profession to investigate the crimes. Convinced that the murderer is Dror (Rotem Keinan), a schoolteacher with eccentric habits, Miki displays a willingness to use violence in search of the truth. However, with Gidi (Tzahi Grad), the father of one of the killer's victims, also out for revenge, events threaten to spiral out of control...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Menacing, Torturous, Brutal and Sadistic Thriller.
By Dave on 22 May 2021
THIS BLU-RAY DISC HAS SUBTITLES.

My Blu-ray disc entitled "Big Bad Wolves" arrived sooner than expected and is in good condition. Thank you Amazon (Au) for speedily sourcing and dispatching this Blu-ray disc to me and Australia Post for their speedy delivery of my package.

On the surface "Big Bad Wolves" is concerned with vigilantism. But, at a deeper level it explores the power of belief. How when a belief becomes so entrenched, we so want to make them into reality. And, are prepared to use any means at our disposal - including torturous extortion - to accomplish this. It is a case of belief / perceptions driving our own version of reality.

The plot is quite simplistic: apply sufficient pressure - torturous extortion- to a suspect until their "testimony" aligns with that of their tormentor's beliefs. There is nothing new or unique with the films plot: dozens of films have a similar basic premise. What is really startling - in this film - is the realistic character portrayals and shear (unexpected) brutality of the barbaric actions of the film's tormentor characters. This very uncomfortably shocking experience "welded" me on to this movie. At times, I desperately wanted to walk / look away but, my morbid fascination choked any will to draw back, for even a moment. I couldn't bear the thought of not knowing what was going to happen next, no matter how shockingly gruesome. I was compelled and addicted - helpless, but to watch every vile frame after another. Or, maybe watching these torturous acts gave me nauseating comfort: that I wasn't a participant and therefore, I was safe.

The setting is minimalistic: contemporary buildings, streets and woods. There is nothing to distract from the film's sentiment, characterisations and character portrayals.

The film's sets are well lit: no obscure scenes.

The director "invites" the viewer to be an intimate observer - a fly on the wall - through the predominant use of near camera shots. It is this intimacy that starts to ensnare the viewer. Our humanity - emotions - form the basis of our connection to this film.

This video upscale to 4K exceptionally well. The image is detailed, sharp, with natural colour reproduction and very little digital noise. Film grain is unobtrusive.

A film that grabs you by the scruff of the neck, shakes you to the core and never let's you go. The stuff nightmares are made of. Sweet dreams.
