Naked ★★★★½

It’s a testament to Thewlis’ dynamic performance that such a detestable character remains constantly riveting from start to finish. I wonder how much self awareness Johnny possesses as he incessantly antagonizes everyone he encounters before experiencing any retribution (surprised he passes the 90 minute mark before anyone hits him). Is he oblivious or is his capacity for evoking pity just another tool for manipulation?
