Małgorzata Szumowska Poland, 2018

Gwendolyn Foster's rating of the film Mug

Brilliant film!! MUG is a dazzling and effective post-modern fable. A blistering critique of religion, consumerism, hypocrisy, parochialism, xenophobia, romance, and the superficiality of appearance, Malgorzata Szumowska offers an anti-fairy tale; a black comedy and social critique. Cinematographer Michal Englert employs a very narrow depth of field to great effect. One of the finest films of the decade.
