The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
Written and directed by Andrew Dominik, based on the novel by Ron Hansen. With Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Jeremy Renner, Sam Shepard, Paul Schneider and Mary-Louise Parker. 2 hours, 40 minutes.
This elegiac meditation on the price of fame follows the final months of Wild West outlaw Jesse James (Brad Pitt), as he hides out with his gang in Missouri. Casey Affleck steals the show as the tortured wannabe legend Robert Ford. It’s all as darkly beautiful as a film can be, thanks to Roger Deakins’ stunning cinematography.
