'The Driver' a rag & bone film by Michael Pitt

Sunday, September 27, 2015 N. R. 0 Comments

The Driver is a rag & bone fashion film that was created and directed by American actor Michael Pitt who also wrote the film's score with his band Pagoda. Along with Michael the feature stars French-Spanish actress Astrid Berges-Frisbeys, and English actor Stephen Graham, all of whom did an excellent job in portraying real people and not just characters. I watched this movie a couple of months back and I've watched it multiple times since then. The film's genre is a mix of a thriller, drama, and romance, brought to life through beautifully shot scenes and a great story, and Michael did an excellent job as the director. What's more impressive is that this is his directorial film debut!

Fashion short films are basically long commercial advertisements of a brand's collection and their purpose is to essentially show the practicality of the label's clothing and the beauty of the pieces in an everyday environment. In The Driver all three of the main characters, and the extras are dressed in rag & bone and it's not done in a corny way like some product placements that you see in films that stick out like a sore thumb. The clothing is as much a part of the story as the film's dialogue. Michael and Astrid who were the brand's ambassadors for the S/S 2015 Menswear and Womenswear collections modeled their wares effortlessly and Stephen looked spectacular. Everything gelled, more importantly it's easy to follow the story line and it all makes sense. This "ad" did an excellent job of selling rag & bone's clothing through a well written story and wonderfully directed film. I highly recommend that you watch The Driver below, and after you're through scroll down to peruse rag & bone's collection at the end of the post.
