Naked ★★★

Not my favourite Mike Leigh film but it doesn’t make it a bad film at all.

Thewlis is tremendous and he delivers the cleverly written script like a pro. The score adds a unique energy to a scene, especially in scenes when the protagonist is running away from something.

But Leigh’s films are gut-punches that leave me gasping for air. This didn’t do that.
