Mike Leigh wrote and directed Secrets & Lies which was a wonderful film but my favorite Mike Leigh film will always be the first Mike Leigh film I ever saw: Life is Sweet. The only Mike Leigh film I was not so fond of was Topsy Turvy, because it wasn’t a “slice of life” Mike Leigh film.

I’m always impressed by people who know the names of directors. Even in the days when I went to the movies more often, I could probably name only Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg.
I remember loving Secrets and Lies, and I’m pretty sure I also saw Life Is Sweet. Never saw Topsy Turvy.
I probably saw it. But I’m not sure.
