THE AS­SAS­SI­NA­TION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film Reviews - MD

Di­rected by Andrew Dominik. Star­ring Brad Pitt, Casey Af­fleck, Sam Shep­ard, Mary-Louise Parker, Zooey Deschanel, Michael Parks, Sam Rock­well 15 cert Dominik’s ad­mirably am­bi­tious and ex­pan­sive pic­ture ex­plores the last seven months in the short life of James, who is de­picted as a para­noid, cold-blooded out­law. Pitt’s thought­ful, au­thor­i­ta­tive per­for­mance as James is matched by Casey Af­fleck’s rev­e­la­tory, sub­tly de­tailed por­trayal of his syco­phan­tic killer in this mag­nif­i­cently pho­tographed west­ern.
