* OlderThanTheyThink: Many people think that this film was one of the first to examine the fallacy in romanticizing Jesse James and despising Robert Ford. However, ''Film/IShotJesseJames'' also featured a sympathetic portrayal of Robert Ford and largely dealt with Jesse and Robert's friendship. The main difference is that ''Film/IShotJesseJames'' took a lot more [[ArtisticLicenseHistory artistic liberties with history]] and focused more on Robert's life after Jesse's death than this film did.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The film strongly implies that UsefulNotes/JesseJames realized that the Ford boys were about to kill him and willingly went to his death, apparently out of simple weariness.

** 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.

* TheWoobie: Bob.Bob, especially in real life where he's labelled a coward and sadly is ''only'' remembered for that.

* 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''.
