My Beautiful Laundrette

My Beautiful Laundrette ★★

Totally there with the gay shit and Daniel Day Lewis licking his boyfriend’s neck. Also really dug how the story didn’t tell too much in terms of exposition, but showed you as the film progressed what the story was actually about. I always like when a movie can pull that off. Yeah, I don’t know, I just wasn’t really into any of the characters or what has going on with them. I wish they would have went further with the racial issues between Pakistan and the Neo Nazi’s, but that always felt like an afterthought. The story started to go all over the place and the tone was really wonky at times also. Pretty good movie, but not really one that I’ll think back on....except for gay Daniel Day Lewis. That’ll be in my mind for a while.
