The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

While this 2 hour and 40 minute epic was nearly ruined by its long runtime, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford ($17 DVD; $25 Blu-Ray) turns out to be a terrifically moody story about the dangers of hero-worship and the obligatory betrayal that follows. Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck both put in above average performances, and if you can make it to the end of your living room screening, you'll come away fulfilled even though the title and history spoil the ending.
