The Look of Love

Slant Magazine
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: "I want to live a normal life," Fiona Richmond (Tamsin Egerton) says to her lover, Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan), the famously wealthy smut-peddler-cum-entrepreneur she plans to leave. "But normal lives are for normal people," he rebuffs. And perhaps the biggest tragedy for the megalomaniacal British antihero at the center of Michael Winterbottom's affable The Look of Love is that he's actually quite "normal" by biopic standards, embodying the now familiar and tired cliché...

The Look Of Love

AV Club
4 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Perhaps the most baffling aspect of The Look Of Love , Michael Winterbottom’s portrait of British pornographer Paul Raymond, is the fact that star Steve Coogan was the driving force behind its creation. Vanity projects have their shortcomings, but, at least in most cases, they give an actor a chance to explore new directions, to play roles that others would never have thought to cast them in (sometimes with good reason).

  • Summary: For all his many talents, there are two reasons Steve Coogan will never be considered a great dramatic actor. 1) he's much too funny. And 2) he sounds exactly like Alan Partridge. More All the same, Paul Raymond, Soho porn baron from the 1950s until his death in 2008, is the actor's meatiest role since Michael Winterbottom's 24-Hour Party People .

  • Excerpt: Den sanna historien om en av Englands rikaste män? Imperiet börjar byggas upp under den så kallade ”Swinging London”-eran med hjälp av publikdragande shower och senare även magasinet Men Only som alla utgår från attraktionskraften i, enkelt uttryckt, kvinnlig fägring. Att det i någon mån skulle handla om pornografi förnekas upprepade gånger av huvudpersonen Paul Raymond själv när hans affärsidéer och ideal ifrågasätts i olika sammanhang.

  • Excerpt: Minst geslaagde samenwerking tussen Winterbottom en Coogan. Maar gezien de kwaliteit van hun eerdere films, is dat nog geen slecht teken.

The Look of Love (2013)

Filmofiel
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Na uitstapjes richting komedie ( The Trip ) en lompe thrillers (o.a. The Killer Inside Me ) is Michael Winterbottom nu terug met een soms interessant en bij vlagen behoorlijk drama, maar uiteindelijk voelt de film niet bevredigend. De reden: de film vindt nergens echt de juiste balans, plus dat ik niet mee wilde/kon gaan in de belevenissen van erotica-koning- turned -vastgoedmagnaat Paul Raymond.
