1840s fashion is characterised by low and sloping shoulders, a low pointed waist, and bell-shaped skirts that grew increasingly voluminous throughout the decade. Hair was parted in the centre with ringlets at the side of the head, or styled with loops around the ears and pulled into a bun at the back of the head.Paisley or crochet shawls were fashionable accessories, as were linen caps with lace frills for indoor wear, and large bonnets for outdoors. Very fashionable men sported low, tightly cinched waists, with rounded chests and flared frock-coats that gave them a rather hour-glass figure inspired by Prince Albert. In the 1850s, women's skirts were domed and bell-shaped, supported by crinoline petticoats. Long bloomers and pantaloons trimmed with lace were popular.Meet Johnny (David Thewlis), the 27-year-old Manchester lad who is the central figure in Mike Leigh's "Naked," a brilliant somersault of a movie that lands this fine English director in dark new cinematic territory. Leigh has done in the past (especially his recent "High Hopes" and "Life Is Sweet") is adequate preparation for "Naked," no movie character you may have met quite measures up (or down) to the caustic and abusive Johnny.He's "not waving, but drowning." Though the cool order of the poet Stevie Smith's line succinctly describes Johnny's situation, it has little to do with his often revivifying, sardonic fury.A product of the English working class, a man with possibly a year or two at a Midlands university behind him, he has the gift of gab of one of James Joyce's Dubliners who has lost his faith but not his voice. His scroungy good looks inspire trust: the sad expression, the skinny frame, the great reddish-brown mustache that indicates some reassuring sense of self-worth. Beneath his cheap raincoat, which provides no protection against the winter chill, Johnny is a kind of satanic angel.He's as capable of expressing love as Jack the Ripper. During his several days of wanderings about London, which are the focus of Mr.Johnny recalls Jimmy Porter of "Look Back in Anger," but homeless in the London streets of the 1990's.

I like the way the class is going: everything is relaxed. Signed myself up to a course at Studio C, in hope to get a better body without sweating too much.
