June 8: Robert Ford Slain


One of the best movies of the past decade. Like Terrence Malick, but with PLOT!

Fall 2007 was big for the young Affleck boy, this one back to back with Gone Baby Gone. Kid can act.

There are lots of other clips with that great voice-over (Hugh Ross: who knew?) intoning specific dates, often with gorgeous photography: "He had seen another summer under in Kansas City, Missouri, and on September fifth in the year 1881 he was thirty-four years old" is a personal favourite. But I figured we'd go with this one for now. One good assassination deserves another.
