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.
