United Kingdom, United States | 2013 | Michael Winterbottom
The new film from the director of 24 Hour Party People, Tristram Shandy, and The Trip also stars Steve Coogan. Coogan plays Paul Raymond, a British porn tycoon who was once his nation’s wealthiest man. England’s answer to Hugh Hefner rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s, when he produced nudity-laden revues, published racy men’s magazines, and opened members-only clubs. But his wealth and influence came at a high personal cost, also dramatized here. “A vivid period whirlwind.” –Variety.
