The Independent Culture

An eclectic director for an eclectic festival, Michael Winterbottom opens Bradford's Film Festival with his biopic of porn king Paul Raymond, The Look of Love (starring Steve Coogan).

The next 10 days brim with riches, from a celebration of Indian cinema's centenary to new films from Susanne Bier, Bernardo Bertolucci Joss Whedon and others.

Also packed in are tributes to Russia's Alexey Balabanov, Bradford's CH Wood and Stan Brakhage, plus strands devoted to ultra-indie US films, the Austrian distributor sixpackfilm and, for those with the stamina, after-dark genre-manglers.
