** There's also, unfortunately, not even a category at most awards shows for the narration by Hugh Ross, which gave the film so much of its unique effect.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The film strongly implies that Jesse James realized that the Ford boys were about to kill him and willingly went to his death, apparently out of simple weariness. * AwardSnub: While the film made a number of critical top ten lists, it was nominated only for Best Supporting Actor and Cinematography, winning neither. Special mention must go to Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' beautiful score which didn't make the list of nominees. * CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The entire soundtrack, particularly during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfv_7mO0M1M the titular death scene]]. It's written by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, who also supplied the sountrack to ''TheProposition''.

* MisaimedFandom: As per the historical precedent, there are a group of viewers who still see Jesse as being a hero and all around wonderful person.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The role of Robert Ford was down to a choice between Casey Affleck and Shia Lebouf. The executives chose Casey because they thought Shia was too young.

better as acclaimed flop
* CriticalDissonance: The film earned positive reviews and made quite a few top ten lists for the year (topping several), but it flopped at the box office and make back half of its thirty million budget.

Spoiler Title would be the more suitable trope (not YMMV).
* ItWasHisSled: Jesse James is going to be assassinated. By Robert Ford. It's left to the viewer to figure if Ford was a coward for what he done.
