“THE LOOK OF LOVE” is the true-life story of Paul Raymond, the man behind Soho’s norotious Raymond Revue Bar and Men Only magazine. Paul Raymond began his professional life with an end of the pier mind0reading act. He soon realized that the audience were more interested in watching his beautiful assistance, and that they liked it even more if she was topless. He quickly became one of Britain’s leading nude revue producers. In 1958 he opened his revue Bar in Soho, the heart of London’s West End. As it was a private club, the nudes were allowed to move. A huge success, it became the cornerstone of a Soho empire, prompting the Sunday Times in 1992 to crown him the richest man in Britain. The film focuses on Raymond’s relationships with the three most important women in his life: his wife Jean, his lover Fiona, and his daughter Debbie (Imogen Poots). It is a modern day King Midas story, with Raymond acquiring fabulous wealth, but at the cost of losing the people who are closest to him.

Limited Releases will have to go Way Back to Look for a Big Hit

July 5th, 2013

It's a pretty busy week for limited releases with several films having openings spread out from Wednesday through Friday. However, while it is a busy week, only two of them are earning overall good reviews. Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me is earning the best reviews, but as a documentary, its chances of expanding are limited.
