3SMR: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
A slow meander of a movie, by which I mean I probably would have been bored if I wasn’t knitting. Brad Pitt plays a great, slightly unhinged Jesse James, but I was watching it for Casey Affleck, who not only believably plays a 20-year-old, but also manages to perfectly convey the changeover from hero worship to ultimate betrayal. This movie is what my mother would call “old-fashioned” which I translate to “good acting, kinda slow.”
Bechdel score: Two women: nope.
