  S teeped in the lyrical fatalism of that last great decade for the western, the ‘70s, Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford owes a debt to myriad spiritual ancestors. And yet there’s something particularly modern about its approach to the doomed relationship between infamous bank robber and murderer Jesse James and his Judas-like accomplice Robert Ford/4.   The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is the story of this transition, of the moment in America when myth was murdered by mere celebrity and we were left, perhaps forever.

  The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford (). Director: Andrew Dominik. Stars: Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell.   Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a work of the most supreme audacity.A Western with little action, a history lesson without any heroes, and a character study that uses contemplative silence rather than the roar of gunfire, the film is everything I had hoped it to be and more; one of the few movies all year that actually got better as it went.
