The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Reviews
November 24, 2020
Perhaps the least western Western ever made - and that's not a good sort of singularity.
August 8, 2019
Imperfect, beautiful, overloaded and redundant, it is one of those films that will still be remembered and analyzed in ten years. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 6, 2019
An essential American Western that deserves to be ranked among the greats.
January 7, 2019
Stands as perhaps the greatest inquiry into the myth of the "Old West."
February 6, 2018
Pitt, toying with his death-wish like some private joke, is eminently watchable in a role with little developmental arc; while Affleck, as his unwitting nemesis, takes his own mysterious integrity right to the grave.
September 22, 2017
An early-established folkloric weight and timelessness runs throughout Dominik's neo-western masterpiece.
March 24, 2013
Affleck manages to strike so many right notes, that by the end of the film, it is easy to forget what a loathsome toady he was at film's start, and you cannot help but feel real pain as Ford's inevitably sad fate unravels before our eyes.
September 25, 2010
Examining the transient nature of memories and mythmaking, "Coward" understands there are as many crooked legacies in high definition, as there were 130 years ago in dog-eared dime-store paperbacks and ghoulish stage productions.
July 6, 2010
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is an engrossing and hypnotic western that places a heavy emphasis on atmosphere, character and reality.

As the coward Robert Ford, Casey Affleck is a revelation. Nothing you have seen from him will prepare you for his brilliant work as the childlike young man who goes on to be the downfall of his hero.

Writer-director Andrew Dominik takes his time with the story, but his languorous pacing allows tension to build -- and permits the actors, Affleck in particular, to add nuance and depth to characters who'll seem familiar only at first glance.

Stylized like a Ken Burns documentary.
September 18, 2008
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is the story...of the moment in America when myth was murdered by mere celebrity and we were left, perhaps forever, with only the latter's meager consolations.

This film is far too long but the central relationship of James and Ford is fascinating.
