An extremely powerful yet little-known film by British filmmaker Mike Leigh, starring David Thewlis as the angry, misogynistic main character Johnny. Running from his past, Johnny in the course of the film manages to track down an old ex girlfriend, get hooked on drugs, and end up living on the streets- all whilst maintaining a powerfully sharp wit, stemming from the brilliant mind of Actor/Author David Thewlis.
P1: "You know who David Thewlis is?"
P2: "Didn't he win a Cannes film award for his role in Mike Leigh's Naked?"
P1: "That is correct."
P2: "Man, that film was so brutally raw, man."
P1: "I know. Affecting, for sure."
P2: "Oh, definitely. Thewlis is such an excellent actor."
P1: "Did you know he also wrote his own lines in that one?"
P2: "Really? Wow. Man, Mike Leigh would be such an amazing director to work with."
P1: "Defo. Too bad they're both so underrated, man."
