The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Review

| |

One of the longest runtimes and titles I have ever seen presents itself to me as more than just eye candy, but a poetic and extremely stylistic piece that's better than any homage from a photograph or old newspaper could reproduce. The frozen landscape blends with a musical score that subtly reminds you of Road to Perdition. Undoubtedly, there is amazing direction throughout, but as an "art film," I wish there was a little more definition and variety to keep a richly textured film from becoming a drawn-out Western with only the two elements of great acting and cinematography. 8.0/10.
