Andrew Dominik's Films, Ranked

by Catherine Krummey

To me, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is about as close as you can get to a perfect film, from the gorgeous cinematography to the haunting score (Nick Cave!) to the fantastic performances by Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell. Also, for me, it helps it’s a historically-based tale, specifically one based on a legendary Missouri figure (played by another famous Missourian).
