Critic Reviews for Dead Pigs

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

Delightfully quirky.

Yan's characters, regardless of which side of the social hierarchy they fall on, are layered and feel like real people rather than caricatures.

Dead Pigs is an acerbic commentary on modern China, wrapped in an absurdist comedy and an oddball family drama

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.
