It looks to me that the film is exposed properly but the windows and such are completely blown out so that stuff is way overexposed.
Having underexposed portions are fine as long as there are properly exposed or overexposed parts included in the image. Like a window or a light. It even could be an out of focus bare bulb in the background.
Personally, I think underexposure by itself, with no bright proper exposure or overexposure areas is bad news for your image. Better to expose properly and print down in post. So at least you have the info in the negative.
Just curious about where you going?
PS it looks to me that they may have used a lot of color correct in post via a digital intermediate.

So how can I achieve the graininess, color contrast and deep dark shadows found in Domino
"Domino" is going for the look of cross-processed reversal, which is really high-contrast. Whether they are really doing that (as they did for "Man on Fire") or faking it using a D.I., I don't know.
But for starters, if shooting negative, try underexposing one stop and pushing two stops (thus ending up with a one-stop over-dense negative) and then printing down.
