Blu-ray Release: Dom Hemingway

July 29, 2014

Dom Hemingway Blu-ray

Last week, 20th Century Fox released Dom Hemingway on Blu-ray, a film that premiered at TIFF last year.  Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is a safecracker who has just gotten out after twelve years in jail, looking for payback from his old crime boss (Demian Bichir), while struggling to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke).

Although the story can be a bit all over the place, Dom Hemingway has several memorable sequences and is filled with hilarious dialogue, including some perfectly delivered monologues.  This is a sharply written dark comedy that easily provides offbeat entertainment, and is worth seeing for Jude Law’s brilliant and completely unhinged performance in the title role.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with writer/director Richard Shepard and a few brief featurettes, as well as a looped video of topless women playing ping pong which is memorably featured in the film.

Dom Hemingway is 93 minutes and rated 14A.
