The one complaint I have for this film may not even be a dig at the film itself, but what the American mentality was after Jesse James was killed.
JayDee
The fact that Jesse is played by celebrity superstar Brad Pitt, and Ford by the relatively unknown Casey Affleck just works perfectly for it.
The Prestige
I know a lot of people don't like Brad Pitt's acting and may feel that he may seem a little too glamorous for a role in what is pretty much an arthouse film, but HIS celebrity and the ease at which he is able to slip into passive aggressive mode makes him a good fit for the notorious Jesse James and his unpredictable side.
