Naked ★★★★

There's something quite theatrical and unnaturally over-written about David Thewlis' cocky hyper-articulate logorrhoea which doesn't quite sit with my understanding of the MIke Leigh improvisational process, but I can't deny that despite the character being a total knob Thewlis gives him a likeable streak.

The film is deservedly award-winning despite some dated elements, not least the sexual politics and Greg Cruttwell's turn as a pure pantomime yuppie baddie.
