Critic Reviews for Pig (The Pig)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Wild satire isn't what we've been taught to expect from Iranian cinema, but Mani Haghighi...kicks off the restraints in this tale of a celebrated but blacklisted director.

Oct 26, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 25, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.
