Pig (2021) | Ratings & Reviews

Nicolas Cage brings home the bacon in this bruised, thoughtful revenge story - it's surprisingly sad and serious. Give the man his pig back, for god's sake.

"Once in a while, Pig falls into middlebrow foodie-movie cliches... but for the most part, debuting writer-director Michael Sarnoski seasons his tale of personal apocalypse with a light hand."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A stone-cold poetic delight."


"Rich, poignant filmmaking anchored by two magnetic leads."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Pig is one of the year’s best films."


"(Cage) offers something genuinely special: a perfect performance, and one which could not exist without every other performance that the actor has ever delivered."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"Pig doesn't give viewers much to care about, other than perhaps the title character."


"Nicolas Cage delivers a performance of simmering greatness, grabbing every inch of the screen without hamming it up..."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"(Pig) digs beneath the surface, but to a shallower depth than it seems to think."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Undeniably odd, but surprisingly touching..."

New York PostNew York Post

"Pig marks a promising and impressive debut for Sarnoski..."

Film School RejectsFilm School Rejects

"A quiet and often melancholy meditation on loss..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Pig is considerably smarter and more ardent than it appears at first glance, and unearths treasures that are barely evident on the surface level."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"A film of enormous beauty and depth."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"A sad but not unkind movie, and certainly not a pessimistic one, Pig puts its faith in a discerning audience to look past its premise."


"(Pig's) commitment to its own oddball vision is what makes it linger in the mind."


"There's a rigour to the filmmaking and a surreal beauty to Pat Scola's images that seal our investment in Robin's fate."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Cage's contained performance embraces his character's losses and his turning away from the world without the slightest play for sympathy."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A familiar revenge thriller setup turns into something quieter and stranger with an unusually restrained performance from (Nicolas Cage)..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"(Pig) features a measured, meticulous performance from Nicolas Cage, who turns his usual explosiveness inward..."


"Pig is not the movie you think it is. It's something far more beautiful, and far more painful..."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"Pig is unexpectedly touching; as a showcase for Cage's brilliance, it's a revelation."


"Pig is a little too in love with its own moroseness - which is to say, it could use a joke or two - but its devotion to its alienated protagonist is cumulatively moving."
