Big Bad Wolves
"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.

Big Bad Wolves
Back in 2009, “Let the Right One In,” a slick, deeply felt genre piece from a far away land, played the Tribeca Film Festival and blew almost everyone (this writer included) away. It’s hard not to think about “Let the Right One In” while watching “Big Bad Wolves,” a similarly slick foreign language thriller that played at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. It’s questionable whether or not “Big Bad Wolves” will receive the kind of attention “Let the Right One In” did (its subject matter is significantly stickier than two young vampires falling in love), but it’s every bit the triumph that film was – it’s bold, beautifully told, and surprisingly funny.

10 Films To See In January
January is perceived to be a flat-out, no-good month to release a movie. Usually considered the dumping ground for films which would be killed opening up any other time—no disrespect—but if your movie’s being released this month, it will be approached with a greater sense of wariness. However, it's not all bad, as the post Christmas/New Year’s malaise not only sees Oscar and awards season contenders expand from limited to wide release, savvy distributors find pockets to release adult, intelligent fare into a marketplace that desperately needs it. So in case you thought January was a lost cause, here are ten movies to see this month, including two that opened in limited release in December but are getting a second tribute in honor of their wide releases.

Big Bad Wolves
Original story 12/09: While Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado's revenge thriller "Big Bad Wolves" took home awards from Sitges and won five trophies from the Ophirs, Israel's version of the Oscars, those honors likely don't quite beat the feeling one gets when someone like Quentin Tarantino shouts out praise for your film. And that's just what the filmmaker did earlier this year when he hit the Busan International Film Festival said about "Big Bad Wolves": "Not only is this the best film in Busan, this is the best film of the year."

Big Bad Wolves
After spending 2012 basking in the critical and commercial glow of "Django Unchained," it looks like Quentin Tarantino is ready to give back some of that love this year. He's already dropped his Top Ten Films Of 2013 (So Far)—with a slightly altered version also surfacing—and took the time to compare "Snowpiercer" director Bong Joon-ho to Steven Spielberg. And Tarantino is not done yet dishing about the accolades.
