Dir. Michael Winterbottom, UK/USA, 2013, 101 mins
Steve Coogan, Anna Friel, Tamsin Egerton, Imogen Poots, Chris Addison
Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People) collaborates with Steve Coogan for the fourth time, in this fascinating, witty and at times poignant biopic of Paul Raymond. Dubbed the ‘King of Soho’ by the press due to his huge club and property empire which, along with his adult magazine business, amassed him a fortune of billions of pounds and allowed him to live a lifestyle that was ultimately destructive to all around him. The superb script by Matt Greenhalgh (Control, Nowhere Boy) contributes to some brilliant performances, with special mention going to Coogan who is on scintillating form.
