Time Out says

'Home Sweet Home' mutters Jimmy (Brennan), screwing a bulb into a naked socket in the derelict Georgian pile where he has decided to take up residence, soon joined by a motley crew of other squatters. Set on the subcultural fringes of Dublin's not-so-fair inner city, Pigs starts out as everyone's worst nightmare of house-sharing, with the inhabitants variously subsisting on diets of cider and Complan, a pair of false teeth pressed into service as pastry cutters, and a pan of pigs' trotters festering on the stove. Gradually it darkens into a sardonic comedy of despair as the little household falls apart under the pressures of violence, harassment and urban decay. Black's first feature is a small film and a bit raggedy round the edges, but possessed of an angry and pungent eccentricity that carries the day.
