"The Assassination Of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford"

18:30 Wed Nov 28

Cineworld Haymarket, 63 - 65 Haymarket, London, SW1Y 4Q

Where does criminality end and celebrity begin is the question posed by Australian director Andrew Dominik whose stunning second film after 2000s excellent (and not entirely dissimilar) Chopper sets the Western genre barn ablaze to deliver a gripping, Gothic tête à tête between two of American historys most morally perplexing folk heroes. Kicking off with an expertly choreographed train robbery which acts as both a narrative nub and tonal barometer for the directors bucolic, mournful mise en scene and script, the film then ruefully traces the interlocking paths of Jesse James and his young admirer Robert Ford. Early word suggested that Casey Afflecks Ford was the man to keep an eye on come awards season, but this is unquestionably Pitts film, his James insouciantly radiating a piercing, unreadable intensity redolent of Joe Pescis work with Scorsese, a truly enigmatic presence constantly obscured behind warped glass, thick smoke, or even his own visibly battered visage. Though, in the end, the films main intention is to have you query every element of its mischievous title (and you probably will), its a journey of immense emotional foreboding and, flabby coda aside, a red-raw classic.
