A very good movie

1 year, 1 month ago at Jun 14 14:55
By now, it is pretty obvious that Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best actors ever. Indeed, he has recently won his 3rd Academy award for the Best actor for his awesome performance in ‘Lincoln’. However, I often wonder if the people raving about him have actually seen his older movies. Anyway, Day-Lewis basically gave here his breakthrough performance and even though this movie is nowadays pret... read more

“By now, it is pretty obvious that Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best actors ever. Indeed, he has recently won his 3rd Academy award for the Best actor for his awesome performance in ‘Lincoln’. However, I often wonder if the people raving about him have actually seen his older movies. Anyway, Day-Lewis basically gave here his breakthrough performance and even though this movie is nowadays pretty much forgotten, it is actually really good. The awesome thing, which was also pointed out by the great late Roger Ebert, is that the same year Daniel Day-Lewis also showed up in ‘A Room with a View’, another heralded movie released in 1985. The most striking thing is that those two roles were completely different (a street punk in 80’s UK and a repressed snobbish fellow in turn-of-the-twe” read more

" D-Day Lewis plays gay, what more can I say? My Beautiful Laundrette examines the life of a young Pakistani dude in England who goes from taking care of his invalid alcoholic father, to making dough for his cousin and uncle by opening his very own, you guessed it, laundromat. Danny boy isn't really isn't the main star of the movie; Gordon Warnecke dominates the bulk of it, though Daniel does give an outstanding peformance as a former skinhead and the strongarming boyfriend of the protagon"

My favourite British movies (35 movies items)

"Directed by: Stephen Frears Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis Plot: An ambitious Asian Briton and his white lover strive for success and hope, when they open up a glamorous laundromat. Note: Even though it is nowadays pretty much forgotten, it is actually pretty awesome and, in my opinion, the best movie directed by Stephen Frears, one of the most highly regarded British directors. It features also a breaktrough performance by someone called Daniel Day-Lewis. You might have heard of him ... "

Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (50 movies items)

"Stephen Frears captures a perfect snapshot of ‘80s London, where racial tensions are rife and gangs stalk the streets. Better still, he observes the gradual breaking down of cultural stereotypes, as bruiser Johnny (Daniel Day-Lewis) falls head over heels for pretty Asian Omar (Gordon Warnecke). Timely and, yes, beautiful."
