Couch Potato Pickings | Naked – it might be grim but it makes me grin

Naked, David Thewlis

So, continuing my week of Mike Leigh pickings, I’m going Naked today. Calm down, I don’t mean literally. I wouldn’t inflict that on anyone besides my nearest and dearest!

I’m talking Mike Leigh‘s Naked, which is the bleak tale of a Mancunian who arrives in London with nothing but the address of an old girlfriend. I guess the title refers to the bare isolation of the movie’s characters.
