Synopsis: The life of Paul Raymond, the controversial entrepreneur who became Britain’s richest man
Release Date: April 26, 2013
Thoughts: British director Michael Winterbottom has directed some failry interesting films that you’ve probably never seen. There’s a fine style to his work that allows him to deliver movies across many genres. This period biopic about the one-time richest man in England finds Winterbottom reteaming with his The Trip star Steve Coogan for a groovy look at a swinging time. Coogan is tolerable in spurts but I’ve yet to sit through a film he’s headlined and not wanted to run for the hills. My interest in these historical pictures is always high so even with a leading actor I’ve yet to warm to, a glance at The Look of Love is probably in the cards.
