Portrait: Andrew Dominik and Sam Rockwell of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Andrew Dominik, Sam Rockwell

Of many photos I took at this year’s Thessaloniki International Film Festival between movies and other activites, this is among my favorites, of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford‘s writer-director and co-star Sam Rockwell, at a press conference for the film. What kind of director does Dominik look like here? The kind of director who would try to catch fire with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

“There are different signs that this is not stopping. I don’t think that anger and frustration and those feelings can go away. I hope they don’t. The attention and support for the victims needs to be continued, more than people worried about these abusers and what’s next for them, how are they going to move on — shut up. You know what? If any of these people come back, I would say, “I can’t wait to see who is actually going to support them.” That is going to be the glaring horror. Who is going to be, like, “This is a pressing issue, and we need to get them back?” If a janitor was so great at cleaning the building but also tended to masturbate in front of people, would the people at that building be like, “Yes, he masturbated, but I’ve never seen anyone clean so thoroughly, and I was just wondering when he’s going to get his job back, he’s so good at it.” No, it would be, “That’s not acceptable.” It’s fame and power that people are blinded by.”

“It’s never been easy. I’ve always been one of the scavenger dogs of film financing, picking up money here and there. I’ve been doing that all my life. This was one was relatively easy because certain costs have gone down so much. I made this film in 20 days whereas 30 years ago, it would have been made in 42.”
