The Dossing Times predicts.........

Casey Affleck for an Oscar nomination next January. 'The Assassination of Jesse James' may be the most unique and distinctive film of the year, with muted intense performances played out in surrounds of the most striking beauty I have seen on film for an age. This is not a crowd pleaser, this is not a fast paced Western cataloguing James' last days of glory as a character of mythical status. Filled with paranoia and restrained exposition of the dark recesses of the characters minds, this is absolutely one of those films that demands viewing and is an experience, a challenge to what we normally expect of a film and extends your consciousness of what can be achieved in film.
