The Look of Love Reviews

October 31, 2017
This biopic of property magnate and pornographer Paul Raymond is mildly entertaining at times and does raise a few cheap chuckles, but it's as shallow as a Soho puddle after a spring shower.

It's a cracking true story and the cast, including an impossibly free-spirited and leggy Tamsin Egerton, are outstanding but beneath the smart one-liners, frustratingly little is laid bare.

If [Michael Winterbottom] wanted to drain the Soho smut industry of all nostalgic glamour and fun, then he's succeeded.

Coogan's own impersonation is precise, but the melancholy that finally engulfs Raymond is beyond him.
August 10, 2013
The Look of Love comes off as an extremely standard biopic that seems to have emerged directly from a template for such films...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 2, 2013
Steve Coogan's fourth collaboration with director Michael Winterbottom is a funny, visually inventive take on Britain's Hugh Hefner.

Frankly, the guy just isn't very interesting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 26, 2013
Coogan is adept at playing the cad, but Winterbottom gives him little else to do.

Coogan never comes close to disappearing into the character, leaving the whole movie teetering uneasily between campy naughtiness and empathetic character study.

It's a case of "fourth time unlucky" for frequent collaborators Michael Winterbottom and Steve Coogan. Well, "uninspired" might be more accurate.

July 19, 2013
It's structured around the question, "What went wrong?" but we can guess the answer about five minutes into the film.

Groovy period soundtrack aside, "The Look of Love" has almost nothing to say of any interest, importance or humor.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 17, 2013
U.K. man builds strip-club empire in tragic, mature biopic.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 12, 2013
Double-billing comic and tragic tones, the biopic "The Look of Love" follows a father and a daughter over three decades in London's swinging Soho.
July 11, 2013
Director Michael Winterbottom and screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh provide the essential outline of Raymond's story, but they're a little too preoccupied with its glitzy aspects.
July 11, 2013
Maybe there was a time when just boobs and money were sufficient to entertain. Not anymore.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 8, 2013
A character study that offers some of Steve Coogan's most interesting work and another testament to Michael Winterbottom's knack for period naturalism.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 8, 2013
A puzzlingly misconceived biopic: a tasteful, subdued movie about a man who was as tasteless and unsubdued as they come.
July 5, 2013
The Look of Love is the latest and -- I'm sorry to report -- the least of Coogan and Winterbottom's team-ups.
July 5, 2013
Coogan turns in a fine dramatic performance in a role that calls for as much actual acting as wisecracking.
