Naked, by Mike Leigh (1993)

I have been posting Mike Leigh´s movies on my YouTube channels for a long time. My audience like his films very much. This one I have not posted before. 

My channel is not public anymore because the tyrant YouTube adores to remove my channels. This is the 4th or 5th channel. I only use YT for storing the videos and my blog is the site you need to visit to pick up the movie. If you have a few bucks left, don´t forget your friend here.

This movie is blocked only in Blocked only in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia,  Ukraine, Uzbekistan. So, thank you, Mr. Mike Leigh, to let your masterpieces be open to public.

Naked is the story of frustratingly awful people behaving in frustratingly awful ways. David Thewlis plays the main character who goes on long annoying rants about everything in the world, and yet for some reason he finds people willing to sit through his babbling. This is the type of irritating good-for-nothing guy who would probably be more likely to find himself living on the street and begging for loose change on a subway platform in real life.

Director & Writer Mike Leigh

Stars: David Thewlis, Lesley Sharp, Katrin Cartlidge. And Toby Jones, as the man at the tea bar.

To prepare for the role of Johnny, David Thewlis read Voltaire's Candide, the teachings of Buddha and James Gleick's Chaos, and the holy books the Bible and the Qur'an.

The script was largely created by improvisation during 11 weeks of rehearsal before shooting. The script was only 25 pages long.

Mike Leigh first had the idea for the story while a student in Manchester in the early 1960s: "We had a very enlightened teacher who endlessly reminded us that the next total eclipse would be in August 1999. In 1992 the millennium was impending, so I brought that idea to the film."

Subtitles: English and Portuguese
