“My Beautiful Laundrette” (1985)

Daniel Day-Lewis was great in this British film about a (questionable) neo-nazi and a young Pakistani man (Gordon Warnecke) who used to be best friends reconnecting and testing the limits of their friendship while remodeling and taking over a London laundromat. There are cultural differences, classism and homosexual themes throughout. The plot here was kinda blah, but all over the place. Honestly, the only thing that kept me watching was Day-Lewis’ performance. Otherwise a forgettable film. Currently streaming on Criterion Channel.
