Dom Hemingway: Jude Law

The problem with Richard Shepard’s film is that it hasn’t quite worked out what it wants to be: is it a comedy, a gritty London gangster thriller or the study of a tragic character?

It seems the writer-director has not made up his mind about Dom either. He’s both incredibly eloquent and jaw-droppingly stupid, which simply does not tally up.

Drama/Comedy. Jude Law, Richard E Grant, Demian Bichir, Emilia Clarke, Jumayn Hunter. Director: Richard Shepard.
