Re: 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford'
Just watched the DVD last night. It's long and slow moving, and for most viewers that would make it boring. I, however, was so caught up in the beauty of the film that I didn't mind. It was truly a moving piece of art. The composition of every shot was such that you could freeze nearly any frame and hang it on a wall. Add to that some brilliant performances from the cast and I really quite enjoyed the film. It's deffinitely not a film I can see going over well with the masses though, so I can understand why they had so much trouble figuring out what to do with it.
