The Look of Love

Director Michael Winterbottom and actor/comedian Steve Coogan reunite (after 24 Hour Party People, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story and The Trip) for this evocative biopic about Soho's king of softcore porn, producer/publisher Paul Raymond. The temporal details--running from the Day-Glo '60s to the hairy '70s to the excessive '80--are spot-on. But the script never really gets inside Raymond's head. As a result, we never fully sympathize with Raymond's journey from smalltime entertainment industry hustler to the Donald Trump of sex. 101 minutes R.
