Saw By Any Means when it closed the Wexford Film Festival in November 2016. That the film was shot on location in Brooklyn and in a matter of weeks makes it a particularly impressive feat for its first-time director. The film offers the audience a critique of the cult of celebrity, the media, kiss and tell stories etc, following the story of Mimi, a minor celebrity who provides the tabloids with plenty of fodder. However, although Mimi initially seems to be the victim of a celebrity stalker, this is not the typical obsessed fan story-line, with a number of plot twists that keep the audience in suspense until the end. Thomas Gipson and Brooke Burfitt are excellent choices as the lead actors and although it is hard to sympathize with either protagonist, By Any Means is, for the most part, an engaging and entertaining watch!
