    That “Piggy” can be splendidly artful and clumsily artless at the same time is a testament to director Carlota Pereda's disdain for the traditional festival crowdpleasing.

    Her film, about an overweight teenager who gets sucked into a vortex of bloodletting and flesh coveting, eschews genre conventions and arthouse subtlety for loudly punctuating everything that's perverse about Spain in 2022.

    I'm blessed enough to be able to walk downtown to work, and along the way, I see some gnarly shit: homeless dudes screaming profane nonsense at the sky, mothers with infant children nodding off while waiting in line at the methadone clinic, neo-yuppies in Ferraris spending $79 on lunch, even security guards hot boxing in…
