Pig ★★★★

A really, really well done subversion of expectations. What I expected to be a brutal revenge film ended up being a grounded look at what happens to those who lose something, what they’ll do to get it back, and even the psyche of those responsible for taking that very thing away - which in this case is a pig.

Nic Cage is surprisingly reserved in this, and because of that gives one of his best performances. It definitely takes its time getting where it wants to go, but if you like the atmosphere it builds, the slow burn will only enhance the experience.
