Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 09/21/2007
4 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his is a wondrously contemplative and poetic saga that offers a fresh and bewitching take on a timeworn genre."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/28/2007
"[A] haunting retelling of one of the enduring outlaw sagas in American culture...shot by the brilliant cinematographer Richard Deakins in a wide-open geography of moody skies and fields plaintive with bent light and shadow." -- Grade: A
Rolling Stone - 10/04/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his quiet wow of a Western sneaks up as one hell of a satisfying surprise. Artfully exciting and compulsively watchable..."
Total Film - 11/01/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's awash with melancholy and ennui, love and betrayal, obsession and paranoia and arrives like manna from movie heaven....An instant classic, with poetic visuals..."
Empire - 10/19/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] slow, meditative poem that harkens to the verdant sprawl of Terrence Malick's DAYS OF HEAVEN."
Uncut - 12/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "Malick, Kubrick and Cimino would surely recognise a kindred spirit in Dominik....[A] weighty monument to the death of the West..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2007
"The film has a good feel for the Victorian milieu in which it is set....Roger Deakins' photography makes the most of the bleak winter landscapes of the Midwest, evocative of the coldness and emptiness that lie in the heart of Jesse James."
Los Angeles Times - 09/21/2007
"What transfers best is Pitt's intriguing performance as the outlaw king....The casually charismatic aspect of Jesse James is second nature to Pitt..."
Ultimate DVD - 05/01/2008
5 stars out of 5 -- "With breathtaking cinematography and a masterful score that manages to be both plaintive and foreboding, Dominik's film slowly works its way under the skin, steadily building to a heart-wrenching climax..."
