"A man with no options suddenly has all the options in the world," goes the liquor-soaked advice of Dom Hemingway (Jude Law). And while he admits that he has no idea what that actually means, he nonetheless lives that credo to the fullest in Richard Shepard's wickedly wild and vulgar "Dom Hemingway." It's not a surprise that our first introduction to the character is during a monologue that he's delivering on the magnificence of his own cock, a work of art in Dom's mind, as he certainly has lived his own life with his dick in one hand, a bottle in the other, a cigarette in his mouth, cocaine up his nose and women with their legs spread, at the ready. But now there's just one problem—he's getting old.

Dom Hemingway
Ben Kingsley’s character Don Logan from “Sexy Beast” may hold court as the most terrifyingly volatile British gangster creation around, but Jude Law looks to be making a play for the throne with his “Dom Hemingway”. Fresh out of jail and facing a changed world and criminal code, the freewheeling lout is forced to adjust or fade away, and we’ve got a string of new clips to highlight that journey.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Love. There are points during “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” at which it simply floods off the screen. It sounds too lofty perhaps, but how else can you describe the level of minute care that seems to have gone into every single frame, every costume, every tear in every strip of wallpaper? If nothing else (and there is quite a lot else) the film is at times perhaps the apotheosis of Wes Anderson’s aesthetic: a glorious, mischievous sequence of pictorialist plays taking place in a world so perfectly contained it might as well be in a snowglobe. This trademark fetishistic detail makes it feel like it was somehow loved into being, and, for whole passages, we loved it right back, giddily grinning in the dark, already mentally marking out those moments when we’re going to have to hit pause to examine the background, the edge of the frame, the action that happens in the corner of your eye.

Jake Gyllenhaal
Okay, the McConnaisance is now complete with the Matthew McConaughey taking the Best Actor award at the Oscars over the weekend. So how about the Gyllen-sance instead? The actor has quietly been putting a together a string of solid work with interesting directors including "Source Code" for Duncan Jones; "End Of Watch" with David Ayer; two films with Denis Villeneuve, "Prisoners" and "Enemy"; and he's currently in production on "Everest" with Baltasar Kormakur and recently wrapped "Nightcrawler" with Tony Gilroy. What's next?

Grand Budapest Hotel
“Many of the ideas expressed and/or explored in ‘Grand Budapest’ we stole directly from Zweig’s own life and work,” director Wes Anderson said recently in his self-deprecating way. He’s talking about turn of the 20th century Austrian novelist Stefan Zweig who he’s credited as having a huge influence on his latest movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” At the recent Berlin Film Festival, where the movie premiered, Anderson said the movie was his “version” of doing Zweig. Anderson is such a Zweig proponent he’s helped get a book published to get the word out on this once-famous, now forgotten writer. Pushkin Press is releasing "The Society of the Crossed Keys,” Anderson’s favorite selections from Zweig’s various novels.

Dom Hemingway has been away in prison for a few years.

And Dom Hemingway is coming for everything full throttle.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Love. There are points during “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” which celebrates its World Premiere as the opening film of 64th Berlinale tonight, at which it simply floods off the screen. It sounds too lofty perhaps, but how else can you describe the level of minute care that seems to have gone into every single frame, every costume, every tear in every strip of wallpaper? If nothing else (and there is quite a lot else) the film is at times perhaps the apotheosis of Wes Anderson’s aesthetic: a glorious, mischievous sequence of pictorialist plays taking place in a world so perfectly contained it might as well be in a snowglobe.

He's kind of an asshole, he's completely out of control, and you wouldn't trust him to water your planets without burning something down. Yet, despite all that, you'll still totally want to hang out with "Dom Hemingway." And a new trailer is here to show you why.

He's rude, crude, nasty, verbose and totally fucking hilarious. It's "Dom Hemingway," the latest creation from writer/director Richard Shephard and it's the kind of dynamite, larger than life character that actors dream of. And Jude Law has a ball with it.
