Another side note on My Beautiful launderette:
I was discussing this film with my friend D the other day - she teaches Film at UBC, and apparently the first time she taught this course, when she showed the movie, a number of her students walked out of the lecture theater because they were offended by the homosexual content.
I laughed when she told me this, I couldn't believe it was true - especially in a film course which I imagine would tend to attract the arty liberal thinkers more than might ... lets say... a management accounting program. Or the History department for that matter. No one walked out of my class when Johnny and Omar were making out on screen. I guess I go to school with an enlightened bunch.
