It's more than a disappointment -- it's a puzzlement. How did Michael Winterbottom, who's made so many intriguing movies that veer well away from the cautious, make a film so tediously conservative...?
Michael Winterbottom vividly recreates swinging 1960s London in this biopic about one of Soho's most notorious figures. It's a lively and attention-grabbing film, but the cast and filmmakers never create a character we can identify with or care about.
This is a shallow but watchable movie, and it nicely conveys the world of semi-respectable Soho porn, sadder and tattier than its sleazier end, with its desperate champagne lunches and dreary afternoon hangovers.
Coogan puts in a restrained turn as the puddle-deep soft porn billionaire who only occasionally brings to mind a certain Norfolk DJ. But he's such a cold fish it's hard to care about his impending fall.
The unavoidable flickers of Alan Partridge often shine through, but that doesn't hinder Coogan from being an excellent, avuncular guide for this tour through the life of a man once dubbed The King of Soho.
