^^ one of my all time favourite filmmakers. Still haven't seen it though, I guess the topic just feels too frustrating. I prefer his low key human dramas. Another year was so warm and beautiful.

Didn't even know Mike Leigh had another film out since Turner. I have a strange relationship with him: Naked is one of my all time favorite films but after watching Career Girls and not liking it all that much it I got the sense that Naked is a one-off and all the other dozens of films he made are completely different in tone so I'm not in a hurry to watch them, though I want to one day. I think I tried torrenting Life is Sweet but it never downloaded or something.

Yes I would say Naked is a one off. The rest of his filmography is quite different, nothing is that intense or verbose, it's mostly about ordinary people and ordinary lives, with a lot of emotion and empathy. If I've gotten to know you a little bit by now, I would say don't bother...

BUT, if you do, the highlights for me, apart from Naked, are All or nothing and Topsy Turvy.

Had to leave the theater last night during the first ten minutes due to it being absolutely filled with obnoxious f*cking talking morons. I'm seeing it Monday during the middle of the day.

You know what, I'll take that as a challenge to find in myself the humanity to relate to his simpler, more humane films. Will start with Secrets and Lies just cause I've already downloaded it and then watch the ones you suggested.

It wasn't just that. We were forced into the front row due to the stupid f*cking "reserved seating" thing where half the theater buys them online and doesn't show up until 20 minutes after the movie starts. It was too close. Hurt our eyes.
