Biography

À l'âge de 2 ans, Andrew Dominik et sa famille quittent la Nouvelle-Zélande et s'installent en Australie.

Il étudie à la Swinburne Film School de Melbourne dont il est diplômé en 1988.

Il débute tardivement sa carrière cinématographique avec la réalisation, en 2000, du film Chopper, bien accueilli par la critique, qui retrace la vie du célèbre criminel australien Mark Brandon Read (Chopper Read ), également auteur à succès, rappeur. Eric Bana tient le rôle vedette et ce film propulse sa carrière internationale.

Réalisateur peu prolifique, il faut attendre l'année 2007 pour la livraison de son deuxième film L'Assassinat de Jesse James par le lâche Robert Ford, un western dramatique et stylisé, avec Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck.

Il retrouve Brad Pitt en 2012 avec Cogan: Killing Them Softly, présenté au Festival de Cannes 2012.

In the fall of 2008, amidst both the American financial crisis and the presidential election campaign, a man named Johnny "Squirrel" Amato (Vincent Curatola) plans to rob an illegitimate poker game. He enlists Frankie (Scoot McNairy), a former business associate, and Russell (Ben Mendelsohn), a heroin addicted Australian expatriate who is stealing purebred dogs for money, to perform the robbery. Markie Trattman (Ray Liotta), the proprietor of a poker ring, is revealed to have previously orchestrated an inside job by paying two men to rob his own illegal poker room. He holds up under rough questioning by the hitman Dillon (Sam Shepard), though later he openly admits his involvement to various criminal figures and suffers no retaliation. Squirrel anticipates that the Mafia will automatically blame Markie for the heist.

Young, starstruck Robert Ford (Casey Affleck) seeks out Jesse James (Brad Pitt) when the James gang is planning a train robbery in Blue Cut, Missouri, making unsuccessful attempts to join the gang with the help of his older brother Charley (Sam Rockwell), already a member. The train turns out to be carrying only a fraction of the money originally thought, and Frank James (Sam Shepard) tells Charley Ford that this robbery would be the last the James brothers would commit, and that the gang "gave up their nightridin' for good." Jesse returns home to Kansas City, bringing the Fords, Dick Liddil (Paul Schneider) and his cousin, Wood Hite (Jeremy Renner). Jesse sends Charley, Wood and Dick away, but insists that Bob stay. He wanted the younger man just for his help in moving furniture to a new home in St. Joseph. Bob becomes more admiring of James before being sent back to his sister's farmhouse, where he rejoins his brother Charley, Hite, and Liddil.
