PIG (2011) movie review
Pig (2011) d. Barrial, Henry (USA)
A man (Rudolph Martin, who resembles a younger, handsomer version of Billy Bob Thornton) wakes up bound and hooded in the desert, with no idea who he is or how he got there. Writer/director Barrial’s intriguing sci-fi thriller has deservedly invited favorable comparisons to Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, although it also finds some interesting political axes to grind as well. Hard to say much more without spoilers - and you definitely don't want these surprises spoiled - but solid stuff.
