It's an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours. But don't expect to learn anything deeper of Raymond's life than what can be gleaned from his Wikipedia page.

A clear precursor to this film is Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt, but the depth and ambiguity that film brought to its amiable monster of a protagonist just doesn't kick in here.

he Look of Love forgets all the other senses when it comes to getting what makes Paul Raymond so fascinating, desensitizing us to caring even less about him than the 60th breast that flashes across the screen.

Steve Coogan's performance is consistently amusing, but the poignant dimensions the director appears to be seeking don't quite come together.

It's funny and touching, but feels like a missed opportunity.

Though all the performances are very good, much of Look's entertainment value comes from an impressive tech package that captures the shifting fashions of swinger-favored pop-culture garishness over the pic's roughly 25-year period.

A serious and entertaining character study - stripping down the lives of Soho and Raymond - that has the looks and acting talent to win over a crowd.

Coogan is a talented actor and has perhaps no greater champion than Michael Winterbottom.
