3 of 5

“..this is a shallow but watchable movie..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
4 of 5

“..the unavoidable flickers of Alan Partridge often shine through, but that doesn't hinder Coogan from being an excellent, avuncular guide for this tour through the life of a man once dubbed The King of Soho..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]
3 of 5

“..the movie doesn't make any of this seem particularly attractive or even especially sexy..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..Steve Coogan's performance is consistently amusing, but the poignant dimensions the director appears to be seeking don't quite come together..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..maybe if screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh had focused on a briefer period in Raymond's hyper-lucrative career instead of flipping through nearly three dozen years of highlights - and some low points - the story would have felt more pointed and urgent..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..and it is ultimately more compelling as a long, colorful look at Swinging London in the 1960s than as autobiographical drama..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..an entertaining and ultimately powerfully emotional biopic with a strong script and terrific performances from a superb cast..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
3 of 5

“..a solid, straightforward biopic about a fascinating individual and his destructive relationships, with strong performances and a healthy sense of naffness..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]
“.."The Look of Love" feels somewhat superficial..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
