A scathing look at Britain in the post-Thatcher era, Mike Leigh's Naked stars David Thewlis as Johnny, an unemployed layabout with a philosophical bent and a nasty edge. In the opening scene, he's committing rape, and before the credits even roll, he's also stolen a car to flee from Manchester to the London home of an old girlfriend (Lesley Sharp). The film's loose, sprawling narrative follows Johnny as he randomly makes his way through the streets of London, encountering a homeless Scottish couple, a nightwatchman and a series of women whom he charms and discards. He lives defiantly outside of the system, refusing to conform to the demands of anyone (including himself). ~ Jason Ankeny, All Movie Guide

one of the best mike leigh films by misanthrope99 April 20, 2007 - 7:08 PM PDT

i love the characters in this movie, especially david thewlis and the myriad characters he encounters throughout the movie. I felt this was the perfect role for thewlis and loved his philosophical spouting throughout. though this is not a movie for blind optimists, i feel like it is a valid portrayal of the weaknesses of real people who are isolated and unhappy.
