Pig ★★★★

Pig is such a weird, seemingly pointless little movie that takes you on a ride so unexpectedly moving that you can't help but accept every twist and turn.

This movie goes to unexpected places. In an almost John Wick sort of way, we learn about this world and this man's past thorugh his interaction with the people who once knew him. The true drama of the story lies in how someone like him ends up living in the woods with a pig away from society.

This man's past is the most fascinating and moving aspect of this wonderful, touching, and often strange movie. Whether or not he find his missing pig doesn't matter. The journey forces him to confront his past and what made him who he is now. And he doesn't do it with violence or revenge, but with deep sadness and even kindness.
Nicolas Cage knocks it out of the park.
