Pig (The Pig) (2018)
Critic Reviews for Pig (The Pig)
At the very least ... this blizzard of oddity marks Haghighi out as the joker in the Iranian auteur pack, and every gang needs a wildcard.
Although it seems almost buried in the colorful shenanigans, Pig's political message is there, and this is what the film will be chiefly remembered for.
Pig is an unpredictable and surreal exploration of an artist's vanity that completely loses itself in the third act, leading towards a conclusion that's as dark as it is unearned and out of place.
With the implementation of annoying guitar-tennis racket renditions and kooky dream sequences, it's apparent that Haghighi's wayward narrative lacks conviction; by the end, it's hardly made a point that lands.
There is satire here but this the director takes a jokes first, social comment second approach.
