I haven’t seen Penelope yet (must I?) but am intrigued by the pig-nose gimmick. Clearly, this must refer back to the famous pig-man episode of Seinfeld (clip below) in which Kramer discovers a half-man, half-pig in a hospital. This scene in turn, as noted on several websites, pays homage to the human-pig hybrid experiments in Lindsay Anderson’s 1982 dark satire Britannia Hospital (the third in the Anderson/Malcolm McDowell trilogy, and in need of revival). What I haven’t seen mentioned is the horrific sight of Peter Coyote groveling in a pig mask and little else in front of Emmanuale Seigner in Roman Polanski’s 1992 Bitter Moon. Anybody remember any other memorable pig-human moments in film history?
