http://letterboxd.com/James_'s rating of the film Jesse James - Mann ohne Gesetz

Consummate in every way. King's command of color vies with some of the most poetic dappled shadows this side of Straub-Huillet. The James brothers flee an ambush amid the chirps of birds and croaks of frogs. American mythology as a dynamic between portraiture and action; faces and their bodies against nature; the vital light outside and the haunted light of enclosing spaces.
