Pig ★★★★½

Not at all what I expected and I mean that in the best way possible. I love how macabre and somber the film is, while still conveying so much humanity and compassion. Nicholas Cage hasn’t been this level good in awhile. Alex Wolff is a very rewarding side character as well. The beautiful cinematography and color schemes are stunning, and the direction is magnificent. I only wish this film didn’t use the shakey camera technique so much, it didn’t feel necessary at all. And yet, I don’t feel it detracted from the quality of the film. Truly, a stunning display of talent and humanity.
