Naked

Mike Leigh Großbritannien, 1993

Elephants Gerald's rating of the film Nackt

This movie is like staring straight into the sun for two hours. Combines a relentless dose of nihilism and disgusting human cruelty with my favorite genre: the wandering picaresque. Goes from the functions of the body to the size of the universe, and in between doesn't stop writhing in agony from the disconnect between the two.
