What we think

Inspired by a real-life incident in 2013 in which 16,000 dead pigs were found floating in the waters of the Huangpu River, the filmmaker crafts a personal, purposely absurd response to contemporary China, showcasing the same, distinct eye for society's offbeat misfits that made her so right for last year's Birds of Prey.

What others think

Dead Pigs is an unassuming topical entertainment (rather different from the movies of its executive producer Jia Zhangke), but diverting and well-acted.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
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.
