Quite possibly the most well-adjusted film about racism, homophobia, cultural identity, and conservative economic policies punching down ever made. My Beautiful Launderette is simultaneously about all these things and none of them as it doesn’t place any moral judgment or imperative upon any of them. It seems content to open-heartedly watch its various characters scheme, fall in love, and try to... 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 pret... read more

“Quite possibly the most well-adjusted film about racism, homophobia, cultural identity, and conservative economic policies punching down ever made. My Beautiful Launderette is simultaneously about all these things and none of them as it doesn’t place any moral judgment or imperative upon any of them. It seems content to open-heartedly watch its various characters scheme, fall in love, and try to find their place within the macro and micro scales of the British communities they populate.   There’s the vaguest sense of a “coming of age” story structure here, but the stasis of the various communities doesn’t sea change like you’d find in normal American films.
