The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford WARNER BROS. PICTURES
Is The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (now that’s a mouthful) worth seeing? I guess so.
It’s interesting to see how Jesse James might have been during his latter years. But the story goes on and on, with little insight into anyone but Robert Ford’s motives.
And while Casey Affleck is creepy as hell, which is ideal for his role, Brad Pitt brings nothing to the movie. Is there a discernable difference in his acting when he’s showing some heavy emotion (anger, sorrow) between this movie and Troy and Fight Club? His crying always seems to make me laugh.
