While i'm certainly not on the 'Pig is a masterpiece' bandwagon, this is still an oddly engaging low key indie-flick with decent cinematography, sharp editing and an aptly atmospheric score, further boosted by the brilliance of Cage and a solid supporting cast, including the wonderful truffle pig itself!

However, it's a slow moving ditty that never really takes off and i was somewhat disappointed with the undercooked finale. It also has to be noted that our disheveled hero goes through the entire movie filthy dirty, bloodsoaked and battered in many public places without nary a raised eyebrow, which stretches all boundaries of credibility... and i'm not talking about the pig here!

Regardless of its faults, this sombre thought=provoking tale of love, loss and loneliness is worth a watch if you want to check out something fresh and quirky, and it's certainly good to see the enigmatic Nic Cage putting in a such solid turn again in between his many recent howlers (take note Neeson, Madsen and Willis). Bon appetite. Oink oink.

One of the best films Nick Cage has done in quite sometime imo. Not a B rated movie - great acting great story line.

If you do not have a minimum of EMOTIONAL intelligence you'll hate this no matter how much you like Cinema Kubrick and Bergmann. You need to have a certain level of sensitivity for this, read between lines and formulate your own conclusions. Every once in a while a thing like this pops up and confirms that cinema as an art is not dead, you hear that Guy Ritchie? It's not dead!

He's looking for his truffle pig, and it's nick cage. That's enough for me.

An astonishing and assured debut; Pig may get you into the theater with the veneer of a darker/darker hued John Wick (by way of, hmm, how's about Leave No Trace, that works for me), but it's much more than that suggests. This is a rather devastating and deeply emotional film about loss, of self and others and the toll that takes, and how it shows ultimately much more courage to reach into someone else's soul, especially if it's a person who wronged you, than to go about the usual revenge narrative. I won't say how this happens, but it's a film that earns its tragic countenance and the look of the film itself (as I told my wife on the way home, the color choice almost looks like a truffle).

On that level the filmmaker is also rigorous into exploring forgiveness and how painful opening those wounds can be. I don't want to give too much of the experience away, it's a true character piece in a vein we so rarely get with this actor - I'll go ahead and say it, this is on the level with a Leaving Las Vegas or Joe - but what turned this from very good to one of the year's best was the scene where Rob talks to the chef at the restaurant. What a character. And Cage only brings big displays of this person's grief and anger a handful of times; he's now at that stage where he can come into a room and say little and command attention. And the supporting work from Wolff and Arkin et al is also excellent and matches him.

In sum: That'll do, Nicolas. That'll do.

Extremely low budget. Extremely fresh. Extremely emotional. What can I say... Welcome back, Nicolas. If this movie doesn't win an Oscar, just forget what an Oscar is and the value it had in the past. Just know, with or without an Oscar, this is probably the best movie of the year. The most honest film of the year. The most extraordinary film of the year. It's amazing that there are still people who can make such masterpieces.
