5 The best of 2007PeteIRL | 18/01/2008 | See all PeteIRL's reviews (7)Andrew Dominik's film about the last days of Jesse James, and the man who became notorious for killing him is a melancholic and beautiful film with two incredible performances by the actors playing the leads. Brad Pitt puts in a career best performance as Jesse James, the notorious killer who seems to be waiting for death. And Casey Affleck becomes more than just 'Ben Affleck's little brother' as Robert Ford, the man who is obsessed with James. Brilliant in every way, script, direction, acting and cinematography. The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford rightly deserves it's spot topping the best of 2007.
