  1. Tadzio Bonaparte's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Un film superbe et brillant, d'une tranquille noirceur existentielle nimbée d'une constante fraîcheur désabusée. Mélange (d)étonnant d'un cinéma d'une étrange vitalité et d'une amère lucidité, une des caractéristiques de la "firme" Frears... www.cinefiches.com

  5. esinis's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    If you are ok with watching still shots of people talking about seemingly irrelevant topics with each other in a great observation of the cultural scene of back then, this is your movie. I mean, it sometimes looks and sounds absurd (and low budget) but indeed it is beautiful.

  6. Kk Soft Boss's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

  7. Makinist Klitorist's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Briton, Birleşik Krallık sınırları içinde yaşayan, ama Anglo-Saxon olmayan insanların içinde yer aldığı bir küme. Kendisini İngiliz gibi hisseden ama hiçbir aman İngilizler tarafından bir İngiliz gibi görülmeyen insanların hikayesini anlatmış film. Son derece samimi ve güzel. 80'lerin havasını da soluyorsunuz bol bol. Tavsiye ederim.

  9. smndvdcl's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    One of the most progressive films of the 80s, highlighting unfair British prejudice towards immigration and homosexuality. The dangers of free market capitalism in a world of inequalities and subjectivities is highlighted with quite a damning critique on Thatcherite politics. With hindsight, this is Frears' most potent film that stands the test of time despite the anachronisms of its cinematography and soundtrack.

  10. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    I liked just how Anti-Thatcher this film is!

  11. Other Domain's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

  12. Abby Sun's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Soundtrack seems so dated and... bubbly, but there's a surprising amount of meat in scenes and the plot devices that drive the narration forward.

  13. angelicidea's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Just a tiny bit random...

  14. Halan's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    I love it for so many reasons!

  15. Log Lady's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Good for a low budget film, but the jumbled way the themes are handled makes the whole thing unfocused. I did like the backdrop of Thatcher's England, since it shows a different kind of reality that Hollywood offered at the same time, but I'm sure there are better works of that era than this (and without the awful bubbling noise!). The acting is a bit stiff, but Day-Lewis has a glimpse of his subsequent greatness.

  16. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    7/10 my review: http://lasttimeisawdotcom.wordpress.com/2014/03/15/mybeautifullaundrettes1985/

  17. Percy's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Films about immigration are rarely so nuanced.

  18. Scott Harn's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    I am in love with Daniel Day-Lewis

  19. Sarah J.B.'s rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    Amazing performances from a film that is just straight-up odd (especially Saeed Jaffrey who hasn't been seen since), it would take multiple watches to really deem its star value. No intense plot lines or surprising directions, but altogether well-paced, well-directed and a one-of-a-kind story. There was some extremely quotable dialogue as well, making the film rather charming. + early Daniel Day-Lewis.

  20. ramosbarajas's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    At first sight, it seems dated and bad, but I feel there is just so much to this. The story is subtle and straightforward, but the way it's executed makes it a great film. It definitely belongs on 80s canon. And the performances are very very good, with obvious emphasis on a young Daniel Day Lewis. I feel that context of its production is necessary to 'get' this film so if you see it, please read about the making of.

  21. Laura Katherine's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    I can't stop thinking about this film.

  22. Lorena M.'s rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette

    There's no words to describe how terrific Daniel Day Lewis is (oops, I just used the word terrific). I <3 him

  23. tayoulevy's rating of the film My Beautiful Laundrette
