Jude Law, former “Sexiest Man Alive,” plays a bloated, hyperactive basket case in DOM HEMINGWAY, a stylized black comedy about an ex-con who continues on the warpath following 12 years in prison. Dom lets it all hang out in a memorable opening scene: foul-mouthed yet semi-profound, he’s a whole new category of larger-than-life gangster. Dom Hemingway may be a safecracker, but he’s a loyal friend to fellow criminal Dickie (Richard E. Grant, fabulously seedy). Dom takes Dickie to the south of France to visit his former crime boss, whose tail he saved by not ratting on him. After a weekend of babes and binging, Dom loses his payback booty to his hair-trigger temper. Somewhat chastened, he tries to make up with his adult daughter, who finds him as unsavory as ever. Audacious, violent, and vengeful, DOM HEMINGWAY is a modern human paradox. But no matter how much mayhem Dom spreads, we can’t help but hope, however improbably, for his redemption. —B.B
