Brilliantly acted but numbing drama about a homeless man () who wanders London in search of people upon whom he can inflict his relentlessly negative viewpoints. Mike Leigh’s improvisationally-based style of filmmaking comes through for him once again, presenting riveting characters and dialogue on the screen, but the film is unappealing and too long.
