Naked (1993)

/noise/movies | Link

Apparently I see this movie once a decade. Mike Leigh at the height of his powers. David Thewlis has never been better. Ewen Bremner! There is something of Harold Pinter, for instance The Caretaker, in this; a continuation of a Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure perhaps. Jeremy is a Martin Amis upper-class grotesque.

Roger Ebert at the time: four stars. Vincent Canby.
