Dominic West, The Wire
We were hooked and horrified by HBO series The Wire, hailed by many as the best television show ever. Superficially a crime drama, the unflinching realism of the Baltimore backdrop, bolstered by writer David Simon's scrupulous research and real-life experiences, was edgier and more absorbing that the bravest of police officers or toughest of gangsters. And, as unscrupulous detective Jimmy McNulty, Dominic West was at the heart of the drama.The personal insights will be punctuated by clips of West's film and television work.
West Goes East
Plus, you'll get a sneak peek into West's next project -- and it's quite a departure from the hard-drinking detective. West Goes East is a new film about the majesty of an Indian holy festival. Hodgkinson hints that the conversation will include a 'philosophical dimension, in that Dominic is searching for wisdom'.
