Casey Affleck's performance as the awkward, awed, angry man-child carries this film, but never hogs it. It's probably too subtle and generous to get Oscar's attention, but at least the Golden Globes caught on.
For all its intended depth and psychological realism, which at its best carries reminders of the work of Terrence Malick, there's a fake myth-making quality to it that, because of its inordinate length, could be mistaken for grandeur.
Compared to Walter Hill's 1980 movie The Long Riders, also about the James gang, this feels an underpowered affair. Indeed, compared to Dominik's own previous movie, Chopper (2000), it is impossibly meek.
Affleck and Pitt have prime charge of the tale's humanity and vitality. The first has nervous headlamp eyes and a wheedling, accosting intensity: he is like a homeless pet you would feel sorry for up to the moment it bit you.
