“mean to me” is the the first scripted film by mcdermott & mcgough. the film stars actor linus roache and agyness deyn in her acting debut. the 13 min art film was sponsored by guerlain and mikimoto, and the stylized 1930s era pieces were courtesy of zac posen who selected gowns from his archive. it’s quite a beautiful piece, and agyness is not only gorgeous in it, but rather impressive in her delivery and acting. that is not necessarily the case with linus roache, who almost looks the part but not quite. like tom fords film, “mean to me” is more of a visual feast than a “film” but for sure worth the time. a great first film, and impressive for a film that is so fashion based.
the film will be shown at galerie jerome de noirmont in paris from june 2nd through july 3rd. the film will also be screened at the centres pomidou during their film festival series september 24th through 26th 2010. by uh
