The Look Of Love


Steve Coogan is the King Of Soho

Fourth time round, Steve Coogan delivers his best work for Michael Winterbottom in the biopic of porn pioneer Paul Raymond, the so-called King of soho. 

Overcoming the silly wig and saucy postcard vibe, Coogan flourishes in this ultimately moving tale of a wealthy man who, emotionally at least, was left bankrupt by family tragedy. 

Bolstered by a strong cast – Imogen Poots as daughter Debbie, Tamsin Egerton as lover/muse Fiona Richmond – Winterbottom does a fine job of conveying Soho across three decades. 

It’s not perfect – the grating title song included – but then it could’ve been a softcore Carry On. Ooh, missus!
