Mike Leigh Began his career directing films for the BBC in the early70's. He is best known in the US for his film Naked. One of my favorites from him is 1983's Meantime It features Tim Roth with Gary Oldman in a supporting role. It stars Phil Daniels, who, despite having also starred in Quadraphenia has remained relatively unknown. Other than one of the voices on Chicken Run, Mr. Daniels doesn't seem to have done much since. This is unfortunate because he clearly has the talant to be a great actor. (shame on the promo company, the new posters and vid packaging feature Roth and Oldman only) Here in NYC Evergreen Video and Kim's Video (sorry, no link) are good sources for Leigh's work.
