Featured reviews for

Laundry
Film Threat, by Chris Gore source: http://www.filmthreat.com/index.php?section=reviews&Id=2739
«Using quiet but bravura performances from the two leads and intriguing comedic secondary characters, director Mori fashions a world into which a little rain must fall, but, if it does fall, it will do so in a gentle and simple fashion, washing free the unnecessary exigencies of life and leaving behind a clean, well-lighted place.»
Neil Young's Film Lounge - Golden Owl Awards 2002 source: http://www.jigsawlounge.co.uk/film/goldenowl2002.html
«Gentleness is a rare quality in films these days, perhaps because it’s so difficult to get right, and Laundry is a good example of the potential pitfalls - the story isn’t much more than a wisp, but at over two hours runs into fundamental problems of pacing which any decent editor could probably remedy by chopping 30 minutes or so. »
