Naked is a British black comedy drama film written and directed by Mike Leigh and starring David Thewlis as Johnny, a loquacious intellectual and conspiracy theorist. The film won several awards, including best director and best actor at Cannes. Naked marked a new career high for Leigh as a director and made the then-unknown Thewlis an internationally recognised star. At the end of which, she begins to resist and Johnny runs away.

Naked () | The Criterion Collection
The characters in Mike Leigh's "Naked" look as if they have lived indoors all of their lives, perhaps down in a cellar. Their pale, pasty skin looks cold to the touch in the film's blue-gray lighting. The film is shot in a high-contrast style that makes everything seem a little more bleak and narrow than it must. And if you listen carefully to the soundtrack, you become aware that it lacks much of the background ambience of most movies; we are hearing voices, flat and toneless, in what sounds like an empty room. All of these stylistic choices are right for "Naked," and so is the title, which describes characters who exist in the world without the usual layers of protection.

Is Naked Britain's most under-rated film?
Friends, are you taking distance from films that confabulate with our catastrophe… or do you find yourself leaning in? I confess to the latter. Do you remember Naked? Not so sweet, Naked is a meticulously moody, darkly funny, frequently appalling film about transience, disenfranchisement, isolation, and an apocalypse so glacial as to be mistaken for business as usual: let the end times roll!
During an e-mail exchange this week, a friend happened to refer to a soliloquy by Johnny, David Thewlis ' protagonist in Mike Leigh's film Naked. While film blogs are currently debating Leigh's latest output, Happy-Go-Lucky , this casual mention prompted a discussion as to exactly why, 15 years after its first release, Naked is the most under-rated film of recent times. The film opens with Johnny raping a young woman in Manchester, before he flees to London where he attempts to engage a series of passing characters, each as alienated as Johnny in their own ways: an aging lush , a sadistic yuppie, a lonely security guard preoccupied by the possibility of a better future, two young Scottish runaways. Naked is grim, but it is staggering.
