Piggy

3

A bloody, escalating mission of vengeance against a local gang

Skull-stomping violence cracks open this Brit psychodrama, which dips into the head of a shy delivery boy (the appealing Martin Compston) drifting through a lonely london life. He’s mourning an attack on his brother (Kill List’s Neil Maskell) when an old friend he only vaguely remembers turns up on his doorstep.

‘Piggy’ (Paul Anderson, The Firm) takes him on a bloody, escalating mission of vengeance against a local gang. Fluidly lensed and unsettling for an hour, writer/director Kieron Hawkes’ debut thins out badly in the final third, leaving the charismatic Anderson to prop it up.
