Pig ★★★★½

NicCageaissance: Nicolas Cage Ranked

”It’s John Wick but with a Pig.”

That’s all I heard about Pig and it’s why I put it off for so long, thinking it would be a generic John Wick or Taken, but it thoroughly impressed me. Pig is a character drama that’s executed almost perfectly. Even the acting was impressive; Nic Cage and the rest of the cast gave it everything they had. The film even avoids violence. It could have easily gone down the typical revenge porn path, there’s nothing wrong with that, it's a satisfying fantasy but Pig subverts those expectations brilliantly.

Pig is a beautiful film and I loved that it doesn’t ever try to move too quickly. It’s a slow burn mystery and one of my favorite films of the year. 5 Nic Cage’s out of 5!
