Review: The Assassination Of Jessie James by the Coward Robert Ford

This was a good movie, it is slow moving but very interesting. Brad Pitt plays James as a out of control, depressed cowboy who is nearing the end of his journey in life and knows he will be killed or arrested soon. He longs for death and talks about it often in the movie. Casey Affleck plays Robert "Bob" Ford, the man who shot Jessie. Bob is a nobody who want to be a somebody. He admires James and at the same time hate him and is scared of him. This is a very slow moving but it is a great character study into the minds of Jessie and Bob. I recomend it to anyone that likes a good drama or western's.
