Nicolas Cage is a real jack of all trades: When he’s not in home cinema junk like «Jiu Jitsu» or «A Score to Settle», he delivers intoxicating genre hits like «Mandy» or «The Color from Space». away. In the extraordinary drama » Pig «, which can now be streamed on Amazon Prime Video at no additional cost, the Oscar winner shows that he is still a very good actor.
«Pig», which was initially incorrectly described as «John Wick with a pig», was able to take the hearts of international critics by storm as a meditative drama about loss, grief and redemption. We at FILMSTARTS are also enthusiastic about Michael Sarnoski’s «Pig». The conclusion of the official 4-star review is: «The elegiac staging and the nuanced acting of Nicolas Cage ensure that ‘ Pig ‘ can be counted among the most poignant and beautiful films of the year.»
