The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Watched The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford last night. Amazing. Visual it was extremely stunning. The top image is one of the coolest scenes I've ever seen...Jesse James at night about to rob the train. The lighting and staging and pacing was extremely well designed...to me the entire movie was like an Andrew Wyeth painting come to life with a touch of Frank Miller. Top is a shot from the movie followed by a couple of Wyeth examples..bottom image Frank Miller's the Dark Knight. Also a quick sketch of Frank James.
