An exercise in nihilism from the masterful Mike Leigh.

"I used to be a werewolf, but I'm all right no-OOWWWWWWWWWW!". Imagine 'A Clockwork Orange', but if Mike Leigh directed it. David Thewlis performance as Johnny is absolutely mind blowing and pure genius. One of the all time best. A despicable, yet care-free man that uses his intelligence to distracts you from how rotten he truly is. 'Naked' doesn't shy away from presenting it's razor-sharp commentary on assault and rape, but will be hard for some to stomach. The script is fantastic with two stellar performances from Lesley Sharp and Katrin Cartlidge, and Leigh finest work.

This is a harrowing film, but of nihilistic dialogue, stream-of-consciousness ranting, and a cast of unsavory characters. It isn't always pleasant, but it is always captivating and an interesting dissection of the darker depths of human character.
