The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Slow-moving character study of Robert Ford. I didn't mind the slow pace, except through the much too elongated middle bulk. We know what's coming from the beginning and piling on not-so-important scenes only pads the long running time. Add the mostly unneeded narration, and I became a little agitated for a stretch. The last 20 (or so) minutes carried a unexpected melancholic effect that I admired. There's also more to admire. The film boasts terrific acting, directing, cinematography, and music. As a whole, it's just on the verge of greatness.
