Movie Reviews

  • this is energetically directed and enjoyable, but nowhere near as wild or broad-brush in its approach. It's a film that keeps on peeling back layers and which ultimately feels rather touching in its unstereotypical view of humanity
    4 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
  • the film is full of compelling characters that seamlessly intersect with one another; its quirky charm and sense of humor will turn off a lot of people; It's far from great, but it's an entertaining and pleasant enough watch
    3.5 of 5 by Anthony Ray Bench [Film Threat ]
  • demonstrating a light touch -- underscored by a whimsy-leaning score and overtly comic moments, but never delving into flimsiness or farce -- Cathy Yan handles her chosen topic, and the tapestry of tales it's woven through, with care
    by Sarah Ward [Screen Daily ]
  • delightfully quirky; a dark, quirky comedy that peels back the layers of contemporary Mainland more; Genially offbeat and broadly relatable, Dead Pigs presents the tantalizing potential to successfully appeal to both domestic and international audiences
    by Justin Lowe [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Cathy Yan's delightful, spiky, comic debut about overlapping lives and interlocking misfortunes in modern China; An antidote to China's weightier arthouse output, settling the stomach after too much stolid social realism, effervescent as an alka-seltzer
    by Jessica Kiang [Variety ]
  • a bold social satire that never loses its sense of fun, Dead Pigs finally lets us confirm what Birds Of Prey already suggested: Cathy Yan has a sharp eye and a fearless voice -- we're lucky to have her
    4 of 5 by Ella Kemp [Empire Magazine ]
  • "Dead Pigs" is an unassuming topical entertainment (rather different from the movies of its executive producer Jia Zhangke), but diverting and well-acted
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
