The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is the longest film title I've seen in a while. This lovely, poetic film is an interesting perspective on the reputation and late life of the notorious outlaw Jesse James. Robert Ford was a wanna be James Gang member, who was looking for a claim to fame and a pardon for a previous murder. Outstanding performances from Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell and Brad Pitt, make this a period film worth seeing.
