"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.

Dom Hemingway has been away in prison for a few years. He's owed money, he's got a daughter and a grandson out in the world who he needs to catch up with, and he has to get acclimated to a (criminal) society that has changed greatly in the time he's been away. And Dom Hemingway is coming for everything full throttle.

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.

Jude Law’s turn in “Don Hemingway” certainly got the attention of Playlist writer Kevin Jagernauth when he reviewed the film at TIFF this year. The story of a corrupt man (Law) being released from prison is a “brazenly R-rated and devilish” picture as recounted in our original review. The U.S. release isn’t until April, but the movie is hitting theaters in the U.K. next week which means a new clip from the film has arrived along with full soundtrack details.

There were few films at TIFF this year as brazenly filthy and outrageous as "Dom Hemingway," and certainly fewer as enjoyable. And while release date schedules dictate that the movie still won't arrive stateside until next year, overseas, audiences will be the first to dive into the fun, and a new trailer is here to highlight what's in store. But don't make any quick judgments on the movie based on this trailer which doesn't really do the tone of "Dom Hemingway" justice.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival preview
While there might be some overlap with Venice and a little stolen thunder (at least for hardcore cinephiles) thanks to Telluride, that doesn’t make the TIFF lineup this year any less spectacular. In fact this year's slate — that runs as deep as it does long — works more than ever to make those other festivals, impressive though they may individually be, feel a little like the throat-clearings before the main event. Boasting a staggering array of splashy premieres, the latest from a barrage of auteurs and a host of indie efforts that have hitherto flown below the radar but that could surprise in a big way, it feels like the TIFF 2013 program may be their most packed ever (though we seem to say that every year). So whilst our attendees face the unenviable (but actually extremely enviable) task of working out their schedules, we've dug through the near and far corners of this embarrassment of riches to highlight the 15 films we're most anticipating from this year's Toronto International Film Festival. It wasn't an easy choice.
