Throughout "Mug," the images appear sharp in the middle, diffused at the edges, the focus mimicking the limits of a human eye. "What we wanted to do is a kind of deformation of the world; he's deformed, and the world around him is deformed," director Malgorzata Szumowska said of the film's unusual lensing, which she conceptualized with cinematographer and co-writer Michal Englert.

This movie is hurtful, based on lies, and full of shallow stereotypes.
This movie looks like it's made by some naive high-school students with naive heads full of stereotypes. It presents polish people of small town almost like the townspeople who wanted to burn Frankenstein monsters. Seriously, dialouges like "god will help you if you stop to listen metal music". Shallow stereotypes with people willing to exorcise a man because he has disfigured face... c'mon. Intellectually, it is below "B" class movie. Only for simplest, most ignorant audience. Ironically, the movie perpetuates ignorance and hate it supposedly fights against. You know what is most vile, most insidious about the authors of this movie? They say it was based on real events, on a real story of face transplant. But in reality, the whole community HELPED the man. Including the local priest. They collected money for him. They made a foundation. They organized charity concert for his cause. His friends, his family. But in this movie, these people are portraited as garbage. This is exceptionally despicable, to show people who offered their hearts and help, as some twisted stereotype frankenstein-fearing crowd. The author of this movie did it for cheap applause from pseudointellectual critics who will fall for "ooh so much intolerance" crap. And probably for MONEY.
