MG takes on a double dose of Jesse James! First up: Samuel Fuller'sI Shot Jesse James from 1949, a film that many regard as the most studio-esque of the great directors' work - but MG believes there is a brilliantly subversive message motivating this western classic. Next: Australian auteur Andrew Dominik takes major inspiration from Fuller's work with his heartbreaking elegyThe Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, starring Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck - which we argue is the most under seen, underrated movie of the past twenty years!
