Tomorrow's Bacon is good little mystery/thriller that you could possibly call in the same vein as a really strong 'Twilight Zone' or 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' episode. The four characters (two couples) are surprisingly well drawn considering the length of the film and the minimal dialogue. Everything suggests to us that these characters inhabit a world at night, a world away from the life they live in the day. The setting and year the film is set is also totally ambiguous, which is a real plus. I totally picked up on the 'pig' theme. As the film moves closer and closer to the climax, there is some eerie tension. You sort of have no idea where the film is going, but then that last shot...looking back, it makes sense and almost seems inevitable. See it twice and you'll know what I mean. Good music score too
