Released in September of 2007, Andrew Dominik‘s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford made for one of the finest films of its landmark year — or decade, for that matter. Yet, as plagues so many great films in their day, it failed to connect with audiences. As we cross the six-year anniversary of a release, we’ve been working behind the scenes to give the film the revival it deserves — and, today, we’re thrilled to announce the first screening.

Any longtime reader of this blog ought to know full well my affinity for Andrew Dominik’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” The film instantly won me over the moment I saw it on the heels of its Venice Film Festival world premiere and Toronto Film Festival North American premiere in 2007, and it definitively held the top spot on my list of the decade’s best films. (It also, by the way, took the top spot on another list: the inaugural Top 10 Shots of the Year column). It is a masterpiece, and any chance to soak it up on the big screen should be welcomed.

Please have a look around the website.

As we get rolling and the articles and blog posts roll in we will update you with links to them.

Stay tuned for our grassroots efforts to engage with you fans in other cities to help book the film in your local repertory house in 2014.

There will be a series of special articles by some of our team members as well as some very talented other writers around the web.

We also have some giveaways coming soon.

Please pardon the lack of content at the moment. It is intentional. We will fill this space and fill out the website more as we generate content and content comes in from other sources.

For now, please direct your attention to the VENUE link for information about our kickoff screening of the “No Eulogies” effort to revive Andrew Dominik’s masterpiece “The Assassination of Jesse James” this December in Astoria, NY at The Museum of the Moving Image.

Please stay tuned. Much more to come.

In the meantime, follow us on and
