Who would have thought a movie about a book editor would be enjoyable?

Review: ‘Black Sea’ Starring Jude Law, Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn

A great movie that’s released in January is good is like finding $20 on the ground. It rarely happens. But when it does, you want to shout out loud and jump up and down.

Jude Law on His ‘Dom Hemingway’ Character: “It was a wonderful cathartic purge”

Jude Law is receiving considerable praise for playing against type in Dom Hemingway, a film about a roughneck, hard-drinking, womanizing safe-cracker.

Though the Dom Hemingway character is quite a cad, Law admits it was ... Read more

Jude Law Says Theater “is what made me want to become an actor”

If you only look at his filmography, you might think Jude Law has been somewhat wanting for work in recent years because while he’s appeared in a dozen films since 2009 they have mostly been supporting roles. However, when Law isn’t on a movie screen he can often be found on a stage, as he is currently in a West End production of Henry V.

Law insists that theater ... Read more

Jude Law on Why Making Films is “Boring” and Trashing His Body for ‘Dom Hemingway’

Like most actors, Jude Law has been in both great films and, well, not-so-great films. And though he’s made more of the former than the latter, he admits something that most actors in his position wouldn’t: when he’s not challenged on a project, he finds filmmaking boring.  That is why he tells The Mirror that he was happy to star in Dom Hemingway because it offered the challenge of undergoing a radical change in body type (and not in a Hugh Jackman Wolverine way.) As for movies in general, Law confesses he finds them dull.  He says, “I really love ... Read more
