A bloody-good new US trailer for the Israeli crime thriller "Big Bad Wolves," which director Quentin Tarantino calls the best film of 2013, has landed. The film took five technical prizes at the 2013 Israeli Film Academy including best cinematography and judging from the trailer, this disturbing dark comedy looks to be visually stunning. Here's the synopsis:

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.

Directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (2010's "Kalevet"), "Big Bad Wolves," which played midnight sidebars at Tribeca and AFI FEST, stars Lior Ashkenazi, Rotem Keinan, Tzahi Grad and Dov Glickman.

Time Out London calls it a "bleakly funny mash-up comedy about child murder, corruption, torture and the siege mentality" while THR chimed in to say "This mesmerizing revenge thriller is filled with surprising plot twists and generous doses of mordant humor."

Magnet will release the film in stateside theaters and VOD on January 17, 2014.
