Interview: Behind-the-Scenes With 'Dom Hemingway' Director Richard Shepard

From the very first scene, it's all or nothing. If you're along for the ride, get ready for a roller coaster driven by the charming yet unleashed Jude Law as Dom Hemingway. Written and directed by Richard Shepard, Dom Hemingway is the story of an ex-con trying to put his life together after spending a 12 year stint in prison for not ratting out his boss. What separates this movie from many others is the stylized, bright visuals and of course, the jaw-dropping performance by Jude Law.

In theaters now - Read Michael's review here

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Shepard (who's American, by the way) about the movie and get insight into the many facets of Dom Hemingway.

Review: The Last Passenger

Submitted by petrocs on April 19, 2014 - 7:33pm


 

A runaway train is not an overly original concept but that's the premise from first time director, Omid Nooshin. Despite the simplistic storyline, the film takes a non-conventional approach to its execution offering more Hitchcockian and less Bruckheimer in this low budget thriller. The film follows a group of passengers on the night train who suddenly find themselves thrown together to stop a train barreling down the tracks towards uncertain doom. Is Last Passenger worth the trip?

The story begins with Lewis Shaler (Scott), doctor and single father, traveling home after a night out with his son Max (Kaynama) on the night train home from London. When Lewis leaves Max to take a call from his hospital, fellow passenger Sarah (Tointon) stops to see if Max is OK. Upon returning to his son, Lewis notices that Max has spilled Sarah's coffee on her coat and offers to pay for the cleaning. The pair hit it off instantaneously but their budding romance is stalled when Shaler realizes that the train has sped past his stop.

This week I had the enormous pleasure of sitting down with Dr, Jane Goodall and the two directors of BEARSAlastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey. This is Disneynature’s 5th theatrical release. The film follows Sky, a first time mother bear, with her two new born cubs, Amber and Scout. Sky is a very attentive mother and is eager to start the long journey from their den to the coastline of Alaska. Amber is a momma’s girl and Scout is a very curious little boy. The two follow along as best as their tiny legs will allow them as they navigate through dangers such as avalanches, other large male bears, and even a feisty wolf named Tikaani. Sky’s goal is to safely lead her cubs to the golden pond where all the salmon go to spawn. That way she can eat enough food to sustain milk for the next 6 months of hibernation. The threat of not enough food means the threat of watching her two cubs die. Their journey is harrowing and heartwarming. BEARS is a wonderful look into the lives of such spectacular creatures.
