My Beautiful Laundrette

My Beautiful Laundrette

In this damn country, which we hate and love, you can get anything you want. It's all spread out and available.

This is such a smart movie. I’m completely blown away. I took some time to watch it because I was scared I wasn’t going to enjoy it, and I’m glad I finally did. 
What I loved most about it is how well made it is, in terms of editing and the way it is shown.

There are many narratives, many levels of understanding the film that it requires more than one viewing if you feel like understanding and analysing more elements of it, but the first time doesn’t leave a sour taste at all. One could focus on the relationship, the outside world, components that imply others on another... realer reality, or just mix them up and die instantly. It’s so brilliantly made that you could either separate the parallel stories and characters without them contaminating each other or connect them seamlessly. 

It was really good. So so so good. Though I didn’t love DDL’s hair that much, I rather enjoyed it a lot
