Most people have turning points in their life, moments where some event changed their perspective and made them different people. Whether it be trauma or success, heartbreak or love, most of us have moments like this. Because I am a socially awkward, late teen who hasn't done anything with his life yet, all of these moments for me have been experienced through movies. The most recent film to utterly destroy my previous perception of reality was the masterpiece "Naked", which stars David Thewlis, or as I knew previously, Professor Lupin. This film is probably the most nihilistic I have seen cinema go, with Thewlis pulling off sharp dialogue. The main character, Jack, is not always right about everything (in fact there's a scene where he talks about how the world is going to end in 1999) but he says everything with such depth and conviction that it's hard not to be effected. In the end, this film left me with a cleansed sort of feeling of emptiness. As far as nihilist art goes, this blows Catcher in the Rye out of the fucking water.
