Piggy is tense, and wonderful. The characters are amazing, and tragic. The relationships are deep and three dimensional, and very real.
really been with him. When Joe confronts Piggy a series of events are put in place that lead to a disastrous climax...
The cover brags about a kinship with "A Clockwork Orange" and "Fight Club", but I would say it carries more a kinship with "Dead Manīs Shoes", not saying in the same sentence that "Piggy" is close to being as brilliant as the former mentioned movies. "Piggy" sounded interesting initially, but we are served with a vague, partly provoking and at times way too static and dull movie by Kieron Hawkes. The problem is the character development that seems to be on standby and particularly the fact that you are not convinced by Martin Compstonīs acting skills. The feeling of going through life and not really living life is something we all can relate to, and that is an interesting aspect. And how would you react if someone in your family would be murdered? However, we have seen this sort of revenge flick way too many times and "Piggy" adds nothing new to the genre except a pig snout. The positive sides of the movie is Paul Anderson, an actor that fits for roles like this (Loved him in "The Firm") and Louise Dylan as Claire. A sweet looking and radiant actress. Love her bob cut hairstyle as well. "Piggy" is average and nothing more.
Mainly due to a star turn from Martin Compston who is a good actor
