Trivia

This had trouble with the Australian censors when it was shown at the Perth International Film Festival in 1975. Normally, censorship does not affect film festivals, but pressure from conservatives forced the board of censors to ban the film. It was allowed to be shown after an appeal to the ban, but it was banned again in 1976. See more »

Kids! You know what time it is? That's right... it's post-apocalyptic pig-boinking time!
19 March 2007 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

Can you think of anything more interesting than seeing a demented farmer walk around his farm for 80 minutes, occasionally playing dress-up with his birds, beheading his chickens, and having steamy sex with his wife, who happens to be a pig? I know I can. Which is quite sad, because the description on IMDb really made this seem like a movie worth seeing, if only for its originality and absurdity. Unfortunately, everything negative that has been said about this movie is true: it moves at a snail's pace, it's uninteresting, very disgusting, and ultimately not worth seeing. I fail to see the deeper meaning of a man running around naked in the mud chasing a sow, but then again, I never was that good at reading between the lines. What do I know? Maybe this is the epitome of genius, but I found it to be a waste of time and chances are that so will you. Don't see this movie.

But any advice that I give you is not going to matter anyway, is it? You're probably going to see the film out of sheer morbid curiosity anyway. After all, how could any fan of obscure film pass up the chance to see something called "The Pig F----ng Movie"? You just decide for yourself how much time you really want to waste on this... um... "film". Don't say I didn't warn you!
