This week, Brendan and Jason discuss a film that is still not Carry On Up the Khyber – that of Stephen Frears’ film My Beautiful Laundrette starring History’s Greatest Monster Daniel Day-Lewis. The guys break down the movie and discuss The Shocking Reveal, how the film is one of the few on the BFI Top 100 led by a person of colour, laundry as a metaphor, the themes of dealing with one’s own identity and much more.
The guys also draw next week’s movie out of a hat! What will it be? Join us, won’t you?
