Pig (Michael Sarnoski – 2021) A-

Just reading the description of this film it is as if someone wrote it just for me. An ex-chef, living in the Oregon wilderness with his truffle hunting pig. The pig gets kidnapped and he is on her trail looking for her in the Portland underbelly. He is played by Nick Cage! I’m already in. What I did not expect is how deliberate and thought-provoking this movie ended up being. It is not some violent John Wick type revenge film. Actually the chef, Robin, commits almost no violence. Whenever I expected him to, I would instead get more sharp interesting dialogue. It’s about art, things that matter in life, loss and what happens to our dreams. Loved this one.
