"Dom Hemingway": Jude Law goes from prim, proper to profane, punchy

Published April 19, 2014

Gone is Jude Law's pretty regality; in "Dom Hemingway," the Brit looks rough, and he gleefully tearing into his profane lead role like an untamed wolf that just got its first taste of meat. For Law, it's a chance for him to let loose with a character like never really before. And he most certainly does, with big, audaciously compelling results.

Aronofsky breathes new ruah into classic biblical tale of Noah

Published March 31, 2014

When the first trailers began to emerge for "Noah," many worried that it was director Darren Aronofsky making the kind of generic, CG-heavy blockbuster his previous works rebelled against. For the most part, however, "Noah" is not Aronofsky conforming to a studio. It's a studio conforming to Aronofsky, allowing him to make a complex spectacle that asks the kind of questions and brings up the kind of drama most $100 million movies wouldn't dare.
