Psychological Thriller: The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

Written and directed by Andrew Dominik and adapted from Ron Hansen’s 1983 novel of the same name, this film looks like a Western but in fact it is a psychological thriller and will appeal to all film fans. Although Brad Pitt gets top billing as Jesse James the movie is actually a vehicle for Casey Affleck as Robert Ford and is told from his point of view. Affleck is superb as Ford in a creepy, hard to watch at times performance, and how he didn’t win an Oscar for best actor is beyond me. Beautifully filmed and paced with a voice over narration that works very well this is definitely not a Hollywood film.
