Jesse James was crazy!

I finally watched The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and these reviews by my fellow bloggers are far superior to anything I'd write, and cover the breadth of the opinions I have for the movie. For those who value my opinion, I liked the movie, the acting was phenomenal, and the whole thing was beautifully done - men, scenery, everything. Brad Pitt created an extraordinary larger than life character, who became paranoid, melancholic and brooding. And of course the ever impressive Casey Affleck was amazing, as a sycophantic side-kick who dreamed of glory.

Thanks for the shout out! I'm much obliged. Just so you know though, I'm in the process of moving my blog (registered my own domain name) so that link won't be active much longer. If you want to replace it, I've moved the "Jesse" review to the new blog, and here's the url: http://www.rachelsreelreviews.com/2007/11/assassination-of-jesse-james-by-coward.html.

Thanks again!
