Watch The Look of Love - Alternative Versions.
I didn't know what to expect from The Look of Love. I like Steve Coogan
so gave it a shot. In my opinion it's well worth a watch.
The film is a biopic about Paul Raymond played fantastically by Steve
Coogan. For those unfamiliar, like I was before seeing TLOL, Paul
Raymond was an entrepreneur who owned a lot of property and strip clubs
in London and was at one point Britain's richest man. It's amazing how
such a rich guy can go so unheard of, with people my age anyway, yet
have such a big empire in London just years ago. S'pose they're not
going to teach you about the strip clubs and nudey plays in second year
history at school. It made for some really interesting watching.
And not because of the more or less constant boobs in case that's where
your mind immediately went there. There is admittedly more graphic
nudity in this film than I've ever seen in a film ever but because
there is so much of it you kind of get used to it. The novelty of 'tee
hee, boobies' fades away pretty quick to make way for a pretty
fascinating life story.
My journalism lecturer always said there's nothing more interesting
than writing about a famous person 'on the slide' out of fame and power
and there's certainly a lot of 'sliding'here. He lives such an
extravagant lifestyle with the drugs and ever changing woman you know
it'll all catch up with him some day. The whole second half that looks
at the unusual relationship between him and his spoilt daughter is
pretty captivating. To give you a taste of what their relationship is
like, there's a scene where Paul catches his daughter snorting coke.
Instead of telling her off and getting angry he insists she mustn't
just buy her drugs off the street and to only do the very best. It's a
look into a life of excess and irresponsibility which makes for an
There are a lot of British actors , mostly comedians, in the
film.There's actually so many big British names it's almost
distracting. There's Coogan obviously who naturally steals the show.
But then there's cameos from Stephen Fry, Simon Bird, David Walliams,
Matt Lucas, Dara O'Briain - the list goes on. All do a good job, even
if some are only in it for a matter of seconds, but celebrities like
Dara O'Briain don't really come across as fully fledged characters. It
just takes you out the film for a few seconds and makes your brain
announce 'oh look, it's him from Mock The Week'.
I don't like to talk about cinematography too much as I'm a complete
novice but I could tell it's good here. Parts where they talk about
Paul Raymond's men-only magazine feel like you're actually flicking
through a 70s style dirty mag. The fashion of the time is very
prominent with bright zig-zagging colours in his clubs and houses
sucking you into the era nicely.
It might not be for everyone is a possible problem- 3 people walked out
of our screen halfway through due to what I assume was it's increasing
amount of graphic porn scenes. Similarly big action, life changing
drama fans may feel a little underwhelmed. If you show a bit of
interest and follow the relationship between Raymond and his daughter
however you'll find this film to be a surprising little gem.
