I unreservedly love Richard Shepard's Dom Hemingway, and I strongly urge everyone with a taste for quirky, dark crime comedy of the British variety to beat a path to it.

I've always been on the fence about Law. For every Gattaca or Closer, there are a handful of The Holidays and Cold Mountains to contend with. But if Dom isn't his best performance, it's certainly his funniest.

Law absolutely relishes the opportunity to strip away any semblance of his former 'sex symbol' status to embody this ape of a man. His chest beating, hard drinking, fourth wall breaking, libidinous freak needs to make up for lost time.

The brutal emotions of the script mixed with the untethered performances make Dom Hemingway the kind of movie that viewers will either deeply hate or passionately love. Shepard leaves no room for a middle ground.

Not much comedy. Even less redemption.

The screenplay bristles, performances are terrific and the music throbs when needed
April 18, 2014
Jude Law is undeniably mesmerizing as the venom spewing, short fused, alcohol dependent Dom Hemingway. Unfortunately the story finds itself running in circles and nothing feels resolved.

An enjoyable lark featuring a magnificent performance by Jude Law.
April 18, 2014
Dom Hemingway delivers on half of its well-meaning intentions - prioritizing eccentric comedy beats over its unconventional tale of love and self-reflection.
April 18, 2014
He's brutal and vulgar, but he fills the film
April 18, 2014
Jude Law shines, disappearing into the lead role of what ends up being a rowdy and giddy blend of style and attitude.
April 17, 2014
Great performance by Law in a character study where there is too much anti and not enough hero.
April 17, 2014
The movie never sets. It feels completely gelatinous and formless, but that doesn't mean Law isn't fun to watch.
April 17, 2014
If "Dom Hemingway" was a car, it would need to get its transmission fixed. It hums along for a while, but it's clunky when it switches gears.
April 17, 2014
Ultimately, "Dom Hemingway" is a missed opportunity.
April 17, 2014
Though it's nothing more than a lark, it's one more engaging than most.
April 17, 2014
Riding the material like a rodeo cowboy, Jude Law's starring performance is a true sight, often saving the picture from cliche with his magnificent impression of a human wrecking ball.
April 17, 2014
The actual character development becomes a subplot rather than the focus of the story, with the main thrust of Dom Hemingway being a caricature.
April 16, 2014
Law's committed performance is the biggest selling point for the inconsistent movie.
April 16, 2014
Jude Law is hilarious in a comedy that starts raucous, but doesn't have the guts to stay that way.
