Mike Leigh's controversial epic stars David Thewlis as a deeply frustrated idealist. Disappointed with the material world at the end of the last century, and the impending millennial apocalypse, Johnny is aggressive and confrontational, but also eloquent, sexy and charming.

With a virtuoso script, brilliant cinematography by Dick Pope, and a cast of stunning performances headed by co-stars Katrin Cartlidge and Lesley Sharp, Leigh's masterpiece is by turns hilarious, terrifying and thought-provoking.

Naked won many awards, notably Best Director and Best Actor at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival.

 Probably the best British film ever

The title says it all. Perfect acting, direction and script (amazingly mostly improvised). I first watched it in class at Film School a couple of years ago and remember being startled at how good it was. the final scene with Thewlis' character walking (hobbling) away in the street is just stunning. It doesnt get much better than this.

A brilliant and thought provoking film that'll leave you wanting to wander the streets of London in search of interesting encounters!

 Stark, brutal........brilliant!

An extraordinary film even by Mike Leighs standards.

When Johnny (an excellent David Thewlis) has to leave Manchester to (as he says ) "avoid a kicking", he heads for London where he turns up at the home of his ex-girlfriend and her housemates. Johnny is a highly intelligent young man who seems unable to leave people to the blissful ignorance of their lives, and has to make his opinions known on everything, from baked beans to Nostradamus. As he ingratiates himself on the housemates his presence coincides with a set of events that show just how bleak and empty life can be. In fact Johnny is perhaps a little too intelligent for his own good and his outlook on life sometimes isn't appreciated by those around him. This is a snippet of the lives of the unfulfilled, set over the course of a couple of days (before Johnny once again has to move on).

If this sounds a very thin storyline then you are right, it is. But this is a Mike Leigh film, and they rarely have traditional storylines, just a thread of an idea that the actors are encouraged to develop. Brilliantly acted at times this is improvisation at its best. Yes its dark and depressing at times, but it also has moments of black comedy that had me laughing. If you know the films of Leigh you will have a vague idea of what to expect. Leigh has made some great films (Meantime, Life is Sweet, High Hopes, Career Girls) but this is probably the boldest of the lot for reasons that words alone cannot convey here.

All in all recommended for those who want to see the flip side to the sanitised comedy films made by hollywood. Marvellous stuff!

 Good film

I saw this film for the first time last week and thought it was brilliant so I ordered it straight away. I have given it 4 stars instead of 5 because the description says 'Exclusive Limited Edition Poster' but it didn't come with one in the box.

 A classic, dark, dirty Mike Leigh film.

The film stars David Thewlis, as a cocky, clever drop-out loner Manc who visits London. As he roams the streets he meets several varyingly odd people. Thewlis's character (Johnny) is an intriguing one, with great one-liners and intellectual insights. The acting is impressive, as is the idea and execution (of isolation and hatred for modern society), creating a grimey English film.

This low budget drama is an enjoyable watch, with no real obvious points, but it's intelligent wit and dialogue are what make this a unique, cult wonder. Beautifully British, this film strips 80's London to a naked state with a play-like insight into the lonely wandering of a disillusioned intellectual.
