NAKED: 4K RESTORATION d. Mike Leigh, 1993 at Genesis Cinema (22 NOV 20:45).

  • “A portrait of male angst and social dislocation, which took best director and actor prizes at Cannes, Leigh’s film features a truly unforgettable performance by David Thewlis. He plays Johnny, a frenetic and destructive outsider who tears through the lives of others like an emotional tornado. On the run from Manchester, he seeks sanctuary with his ex-girlfriend Louise (Lesley Sharp) in London, where he immediately targets her vulnerable housemate Sophie (Katrin Cartlidge). From there, he embarks on a nocturnal odyssey across the city, dragging other disaffected souls into his orbit as he spirals towards his own personal apocalypse. Leigh’s film is astonishing – a controversial and unforgettable exploration of society morally adrift in the aftermath of Thatcher’s decade in power.”
