…when Daniel Day Lewis retires – albeit at a good decade earlier than most of us will. Never my favourite actor, though I have to admit to liking There Will Be Blood – but I do agree with this point made in this overview here in the Guardian of his career… 

 

…my favourite Day-Lewis roles are not his Lincoln or Christy Brown. I loved the sheer sinuous sexiness and subversion of his gay ex-fascist street-fighter punk Johnny Burfoot in My Beautiful Laundrette (1985), scripted by Hanif Kureishi and directed by Stephen Frears.

That’s a fantastic film and with a depth and complexity (politically too) that foreshadows some of what we’ve seen in more contemporary times.
