"Pig" is without a doubt a film that's clearly different and away from some normal film norms, still even as the story is that of a lost pig the movie connects with themes of drama and emotions. Set in the rural Oregon wilderness Rob(in a good well done performance from Cage) is a lonely truffle hunter who lives life rough raising his own food and living like a hermit rarely getting out and even so and then he gets drama from his old rattle trap truck. However his beloved pet pig keeps him going, then the world is turned upside down when Rob's pig is kidnapped. This then takes the film on a past journey of things, and people that Rob remembers as he does a search and travel in the big city of Portland looking for his pig. The film is raw and gruff with Nicolas looking his rugged best with long hair and a beard, however Rob's character is that of a fighter as he searches bars, restaurants, and homes of people from the past just to find his pig. Still even though this story involves a lost animal the drama, pain, emotion, and sorrow matches that of any human story. Overall "Pig" is one eye opening touching painful film that shows how when connection and attachment is lost it brings sorrow.

Tough, raw, and gritty film of loss, pain, and sorrow.
Cages best friend
Can Pigs be Pets? Or are they more a "workforce" of sorts? On the other hand, one may argue here it is more the role of a friend that the pig inhabits. Which makes the relationship between Cage and his quite furry four legged friend interesting to say the least.
If you've read a sort of summary of what this is going to be ... I imagine there are things that are not covered. Things that may feel weird while you watch it. You may expect certain things to happen in this movie ... but the movie will not satisfy those needs or even wants. It will follow its own route/road and its own pace ... which is quite slow. A movie called something with Joe that Cage starred in, is one that reminds me mood and pace wise of this. Still way different overall - so I'm not comparing the movies. But Cages performance is as subtle and low maintance as it can be ... something that we may not be used to, especially lately. Curious to see how the Prisoners of Ghostland will compare to this ...
I see people giving this one high ratings and that Cage got a number of rewards for it. I'm not convinced. The hog-stealing plot feels like a cheap riff on JOHN WICK and yet from that point onwards absolutely nothing happens. Cage hams it up for all his worth as is his wont these days, but the almost entire lack of story and plot development makes this extremely difficult to watch. It's a bore!
