Pig ★★★★

pig, a movie that seemingly came out of nowhere, is one of the most profound, beautiful, and touching films i've seen this year. it's hard to believe that this is a debut, considering the uniqueness and complexity in the script and worldbuilding. it mediates on loss in such a moving way; using food, nature, cities, and work as a way to show the different ways loss can effect us. nicolas cage is great here, giving one of the most nuanced performances of his career. one of the first truly great releases of 2021.
