Robert Ford, who's idolized Jesse James since childhood, tries hard to join the reforming gang of the Missouri outlaw, but gradually becomes resentful of the bandit leader.

I really like this movie, particularly the narrow-depth-of-focus gimmick in the cinematography. It's so pretty that I'm surprised more movies don't lean on the technique.

Also, this is the first movie where I noticed Garret Dillahunt playing a low-IQ rustic doofus, and he seems to have made it a minor specialty ever since.

Yeah, this is a really good movie that somehow flies under most people's radar.
