The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Synopsis - An action western surrounding the private life and public exploits of America's most notorious outlaw, Jesse James. As the charismatic and unpredictable outlaw plans his next great robbery, he wages war on his enemies, who are trying to collect the reward money--and the glory--that is riding on his capture. However, the greatest threat to Jesse's life may ultimately come from those he trusts the most.

Review - Well I never thought I would appreciate cowboy flicks but the name Jesse James rang a bell and I decided to give this flick a shot. To my amazement, this flick is really very well shot, almost like an art flick packed with excellent acting by Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck. Hats off to Casey who did a marvellous job in portraying Robert Ford. How he thought he actually did the right thing but ended up being the pain in the ass of the town. However, I've got to admit that this flick is not for everybody because its pretty long winded but if you're looking some serious good acting which has been lacking lately, this is one film to be watched.
