The Look of Love: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: Michael Winterbottom is a filmmaker known for making movies that look and feel authentic. On his resume are The Killer Inside Me, A Mighty Heart, and Code 46, as well as many others. Funnyman Steve Coogan is one of his most frequent collaborators, and the two have once again teamed for a biographical film about Paul Raymond, who can best be described as the British Hugh Hefner, eternally committed to pushing the envelope with his Men Only magazine and other sexual and experimental exploits. It may well be Coogan’s most dramatic role yet, and it’s another marvelous cinematic success from this duo. (Cinema, The Look of Love) A-/A+
