Imgoen Poots and Steve Coogan in THE LOOK OF LOVE
Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the latest from the prolific Michael Winterbottom didn't exactly win our man on the ground over (he called it "a shallow misfire"), but a swinging, Steve Coogan-starring trip into smut is still something many will be curious about. And this first clip from "The Look Of Love" seems to capture both the wit and other pleasures some might derive from the movie.

Tamsin Egerton in THE LOOK OF LOVE
So, with Steven Soderbergh stepping away from film sets to pursue other endeavors, whose going to replace him as the cinematic chameleon to follow? Well, how about Michael Winterbottom? In the past few years the Brit helmer has gone from scuzzy noir "The Killer Inside Me" to comedic road trip series "The Trip" to an India-set Thomas Hardy adaptation "Trishna" to an intimate character study with "Everyday." And now, his latest is a biopic on smut king and real estate baron Paul Raymond. Like we said, the guy doesn't like to repeat himself.

While stylishly capturing the verve, exotica, and free-spirited mojo of swinging '60s London, uber-prolific English director Michael Winterbottom's portrait of legendary U.K. smut impresario Paul Raymond is otherwise a shallow misfire.

While “The Master” and “Cloud Atlas” stormed TIFF this festival year with their sweeping performances and expansive themes (one film a little more successfully than the other, by most accounts...), it was inevitable that many other films, even from world-renowned directors, were going to fall under the radar. One such film is probably the latest from British helmer Michael Winterbottom – last seen adding to his ultra-prolific output with the drama “Trishna” – with his latest, the long-in-the-offing, “Everyday.”

Michael Winterbottom is a predictably unpredictable filmmaker – always zigging when you think he's going to zag, and taking on material that is uniform only in the sense that it's always very different and very challenging. Everything from his hardcore sex romp "9 Songs" to his sci-fi-ish "Code 39" to a bunch of movies that don't have numbers in the title (like his terrific Southern noir "The Killer Inside Me" and his ridiculously funny "The Trip"), Winterbottom constantly surprises and even if they aren't all classics (like his revisionist literary take "Trishna" from earlier this year), they're all interesting. And with the release of the teaser for his new film "Everyday," set to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, his trend for eclecticism seems to have continued unabated.

Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy. The late 19th century British author has so far inspired two of the director's films: 1995's "Jude," an adaptation of "Jude the Obscure" with Kate Winslet, and "The Claim," a version of "The Mayor of Casterbridge" moved to a Californian mountain Western setting.

It looks like Hollywood doesn't have exclusivity on rival projects. Across the pond in the U.K., Michael Winterbottom's "The King Of Soho" is not only facing some competition, but also a lawsuit, as another movie about porn baron Paul Raymond with a potentially big name set to star.
