The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

(Edit) 01/05/2008

Not so much a Western as an exploration of the cult of the hero. Jesse James is shown as a bullying, violent, but disturbingly charismatic character who is idolised by his followers - who are also terrified of him.

The title of the film is from the Music Hall re-telling of his assasination - ironic in that the 'cowards' had to overcome their terror to rid the society of an evil despot. Yet that same society is shown to still idolise the criminal and despise the real hero - Robert Ford
