The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

There's not a lot of rootin', tootin' action in this lengthy, late-period Western, but the relationship between slightly over-the-hill trainrobber Jesse James (Brad Pitt) and his sycophantic, idol-worshipping would-be killer (Casey Affleck) is mesmerizing. Affleck creates a particularly memorable character in real-life assassin Robert Ford--he's sort of the Old West version of Mark David Chapman. The film takes its sweet time getting to the titular action, but it's a gorgeously-shot, thought-provoking ride. 160 minutes
