HUMAN CONDITIONS: THE FILMS OF MIKE LEIGH Comes to Be Featured at Film at Lincoln Cen Photo HUMAN CONDITIONS: THE FILMS OF MIKE LEIGH Comes to Be Featured at Film at Lincoln Center
by Marissa Tomeo - May 3, 2022

Film at Lincoln Center announces Human Conditions: The Films of Mike Leigh, a retrospective of the widely lauded director’s career, running from May 27-June 8. For over half a century, Mike Leigh has directed films suffused with emotion and the realities of working-class struggle. From his debut feature, Bleak Moments (1971); to his ’70s television work for the BBC; to the breakout mid-career successes of Life Is Sweet (1990), Naked (1993), and Secrets and Lies (1996); through the historical films that have marked his output more recently, like Mr. Turner (2014) and Peterloo (2018), a Mike Leigh film always has an unmistakable energy and feeling for the triumphs and tragedies of everyday life.
