Cinema of Mike Leigh by Garry Watson
Book DescriptionA keen, if somewhat caustic, observer of British manners and mores, Mike Leigh has been hailed as a director who celebrates the lives of 'ordinary' people in his work, both in film and in theatre. Comparing and contrasting all his films from "Bleak Moments" and "High Hopes" through "Naked", "Career Girls" and "Topsy-Turvy" to "All or Nothing", Garry Watson considers this claim, examining the influence and effect of each film, as well as the approach to 'the real'. Through careful textual detail and wider social and literary comparison with the works of Charles Dickens, T. S. Eliot and D. H. Lawrence amongst others, "The Cinema of Mike Leigh: A Sense of the Real" argues ultimately for the artistic and cultural significance of Leigh's work as one of Britain's most respected filmmakers and screenwriters.
