My Beautiful Laundrette

My Beautiful Laundrette ★★★★½

the scene where he pulls him into the shadows to kiss him & the camera pans up to see around the corner & it’s the first kiss of the film so it’s a little surprising just in terms of the suddenness of the moment but it’s not unexpected & you can see the skinheads coming so there’s already that undercurrent of dangerous discovery too but it’s still so gentle & tremendous...would love to be loved like this some day
