Plenty of coke and sex.

This film was like his plays ... full of nudity and boooooobs yet so boring.

This biopic from Michael Winterbottom has an excellent cast including Imogen Poots and Steve Coogan and is about Paul Raymond who was once Britain's richest man, and was in the adult entertainment industry. Though he led an interesting life, the film is somewhat dull. Still, I thought it was worth a watch and enjoyed the performances.

A glorification of the life Paul Raymond which loses a bit of its focus with its repetition. Coogan is definitely a charismatic lead though.

A puzzling biopic: a tasteful, subdued movie about a man who was as tasteless and unsubdued as they come.

Enjoyable biopic of a sex industry mogul with Steve Coogan a good choice for lead to give it a nice comedy edge throughout.

Coogan is the reason to watch this biopic film, he is truly fantastic. It also has a great supporting cast, looks great, love the music and while it isn't all that engaging in terms of plot it is entertaining.

Not bad, Just not very interesting.

Described as 'drama/comedy', this is a sad and tragic tale but a watchable movie with some very unsubtle (and usually uncomfortable) humour.

A lot of nude photos, but doesn't mean that is a porn movie. Paul Raymond built his business in a grey area where he constantly being watched by the prosecutor about what he did to the public.

The movie was beautifully and commercially edited to fit the mass appetites towards the curiosity of erotica, yet cleverly inserted his business and portraying his intelligence and ingenuity into his huge success.

A movie to watch

Flat, dull, & uninteresting.

The Look of Love [La mirada del amor, 2013]
October 25, 2014
Judging by the money that this movie had made, audiences obviously didn't like the directors interpretation of Paul Raymond's life. I hadn't heard of him before watching this movie so I found his story quite interesting. I didn't know that Soho had been controlled by one person and how the whole empire started so it was a bit of an eye opener. I would like to see a proper biopic though.
½ October 24, 2014
A family drama with some glamour swing and dull sir/madam acting.
½ September 23, 2014
British movies are so much more honest and that is what can be said about this one. At first Coogan was just being Coogan but as the story started to mature I looked past this. Definitely worth a watch.

The Look of Love is a bio about Paul Raymond the richest man in Britain at the time he was alive. THis movie tells his very graphic life story about his rise to fame fortune and his adventures with women.
This movie is no fairy tale its a in your face confronting film that does not hold back. It is highly adult orientated no kids allowed at all.
The movie teaches us about love in a different way.
If you do not know who paul raymond was you could say he is the equivalent to Hugh Hefner in the USA mind you Paul made it big there also.
An interesting tale that make you sit up and pay attention and be glad that you don't go as far as some people in this movie did.

This is just too much.

2 Stars. The Look of Love doesn't seem like the look of love at all for me.
½ July 18, 2014
Story of a man who starts with striptease-club and ends with much more and porno magazine Men's Only .
July 13, 2014
It could have been a very good movie, sex, drug and money during the 60s, 70s and 80s in London, the cast is good, but in the end this is just a wasted chance.
June 21, 2014
An OK biopic - of someone I'd never heard of before - with plenty of boobs, some humour and plenty of drama and family conflict. Some good acting from Coogan & Poots as they try to work out how to have their own lives and how to be a good father & daughter.
