I only have 99 words to get my point across in these reviews, so thankfully the title of this movie sums up the entire plot. This western’s a slow burn, revolving not around action but the strange relationship between legendary outlaw Jesse James and timid wannabe Robert Ford. It’s a bit too long, and a lot of the really interesting stuff happens in the final 20 minutes, but it’s worth the watch for some career-best performances from Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck, along with beautiful cinematography and a top-notch soundtrack from noted weirdo songster Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
Archer is the managing editor at Milwaukee Magazine. Some say he is a great warrior and prophet, a man of boundless sight in a world gone blind, a denizen of truth and goodness, a beacon of hope shining bright in this dark world. Others say he smells like cheese.
