Mike Leigh, a legend in Britain, has perfected his own brand of improvisational tragicomedy, squeezing ironies out of the darkest social and political situations and working through his cultural conscience with a tight ensemble of first-rate actors. Here Leigh opens his closed set exclusively to the laserdisc audience.

David Thewlis shines as Johnny, a brilliant, sex-driven drifter in Mike Leigh's dark new vision, Naked. Viciously articulate, manipulative, and utterly charming, Johnny mixes with the down-and-out, using his razor wit and a brutal set of sexual urges to wield power over others. British master Mike Leigh has reached the height of his powers with this black comedy. Special features include:

  • Award-winning Mike Leigh short, The Short and Curlies
  • Commentary by Leigh and actors David Thewlis and Katrin Cartlidge
  • The U.K. theatrical trailer
  • A Leigh filmography with clips and commentary
  • Complete radio drama Too Much of a Good Thing
  • Exclusive new digital transfer in the director-approved aspect ratio of 1.75:1
