Mike Leigh Marea Britanie, 1993

Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film Naked

A tumbling, lifelike machine that grinds and shambles to the perpetual sound of a cacophonous, human decadence. It's our miserable existence tightly packed into a two hour reel of filthy grain that I just couldn't NOT empathize with. Mike Leigh keeps a very fluid leash throughout the course of the narrative, but never loses control of what on lesser hands could have ended up as a total disaster
