Critic Reviews for Dead Pigs

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

An antidote to China's weightier arthouse output, settling the stomach after too much stolid social realism, effervescent as an alka-seltzer.

Delightfully quirky.

It is bitingly satirical, trenchantly observant, and features a cast of characters that runs the entire social gamut. It is also deeply rooted in actual, documented events.

Dead Pigs is a weird, weird ride. Weird in a good way? Sure, sometimes. The film is unique.

... offers a mosaic meditation on money and class in modern China.

Demonstrating a light touch - underscored by a whimsy-leaning score and overtly comic moments, but never delving into flimsiness or farce - Yan handles her chosen topic, and the tapestry of tales it's woven through, with care.
