Review of Naked (1993)

Moving picture, 132 minutes

Seen in 2018.

Cynical, hateful, parasitic ingrates.

There are moments of good writing and acting but I don’t see the point. Obviously Johnny is intelligent, and like the titular character of Harry Munter (1969) he has emotional problems putting his talents to use. He is not even competent to put up posters. However, he is not a nihilist. If the theory he expounds to Brian is sincere, Johnny is religious and a mere conspiracy nut. Actual nihilists typically expend some effort on comfort.
