Mike Leigh won the best director and David Thewlis best actor at the 1993 Cannes film festival for this, one of the filmmaker’s most uncompromising works.
The film follows the often uncomfortable encounters of Thewlis’ Johnny as he journeys through London. Developed once again using the director’s particular method of collaboration with his performers, Naked dissects a Britain, dripping with alienation and disaffection, in the thrall of post-Thatcherism. In doing so, he so creates one of his most distinctive and controversial works.
