The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

The true assassination was carried out by the general public at the box office, nobody actually went to see it! This is however, an excellent film….. just a very long one. The immaculate cinematography renders every shot as a striking painting worthy of display in a gallery. It seems insane that an Oscar wasn’t awarded for this alone. The voiceover is beautifully written and always relevant. As for the acting, every performance is pretty much perfect. Brad Pitt makes Jesse James dangerous and unpredictable. Casey Affleck is excellent too. This is a unique and important film that deserves to reach a much wider audience.
