Pig ★★★★½

A subversion of the revenge thriller dynamic that replaces violent retribution with soul searching honesty. Easily Cage's most subdued performance in years that communicates so much character work through a minimal amount of dialogue. His begrudging mentorship role with Alex Wolff's character proves a highlight and adds some levity to the grief-laden subject matter. And the way that the film depicts the emotional, communal power of food and cooking is simply sublime.
