A visually amazing treat
11 August 1998 | by (Haverford, PA) – See all my reviews

I saw MugShot at the London Film festival last year, and was blown away. The visuals are stunning, with great composition of each shot. The story (a white photographer is mugged in Harlem and suffers amnesia; one of his attackers is a would-be photographer who takes over his life for a while) is interesting, and raises interesting issues about race and belonging, as well as the effects of economics on art.

The acting is OK, but it plays second fiddle to the visuals anyway, so it doesn't matter as much. Each frame of the film could be blown up into an 8x10 and displayed in a gallery. Mahurin is a still photgrapher and music video director, and the effects are apparent. In music video, you have to let the visuals tell the story, and the composition of the shots shows the influence of art photography.

I would really like to see this film again, but have been unable to find it anywhere. If anyone out there does know where a copy could be obtained, I 'd be very grateful.
