This year I had about 81 films I was really looking forward to. Of those I have seen so far some have disappointed and some of them have been sublime but only one has popped up out of nowhere to become one of my most eagerly awaited films of the year. I am of course talking about Richard Shepard's Dom Hemingway!
The title alone should be enough to pique my curiosity but then back in December 2012 Richard E. Grant tweeted this bizarre photo featuring a lamb chopped Jude Law and a yellow sunglasses, one gloved wearing Richard E Grant, both sartorially Concours d'Elegance and I became very interested. The photo instantly implied a Matador, Withnail & I like Hunter S. Thompson 'eske surrealism and I was hooked.

Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse, funny, profane, and dangerous. Back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison, it’s time to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut.
Travelling with his devoted best friend Dickie (Richard E. Grant), Dom visits his crime boss Mr Fontaine (Demián Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward. But Dom’s drink and drug-fuelled ego decides that what he’s lost can’t be replaced. One car accident and a femme fatale later, Dom realises that his priority must be to reconnect with his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke). But Dom does what Dom does best. He screws things up for everyone…
After watching the trailer it looks like Producer Jeremy Thomas is bringing more than just the stunning visuals of Sexy Beast into the mix and with the reviews Dom Hemingway is getting I can't wait to see it.
