The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

I was texting back and forth with a good friend about the film’s I had yet to watch in order to complete my yearly Oscar challenge. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs was one of them. Not for any deep reason beyond it was on Netflix so what was the rush, really? I think he succinctly put it best in that chat by describing it as thus: “Buster Scruggs is a Coen movie. It’s good but eh.”   Short... read more

The title ballad/sketch (more than a ballad is a country black humour stuff) is not the best, is more clisé and satire of singing mortal cowbow outpast bu another one, till dead. There's always dead in the other sketches, including the experience of being almost hung ("first time?" asks James Franco to a companion of dead). 4 stars is because of wonderful sketch with Liam Neeson and the no legged... read more

A good movie

Since I have always been a huge fan of the Coen brothers, of course, I was really eager to check this flick. Well, even if it won't go down as one of their best movies, I thought it was fairly enjoyable and, at least, it was a slight improvement on 'Hail, Caesar!' which was, in my opinion, one of their weakest movies so far. First of all, even though some hard-core movie fans might prefer the good... read more

" Date: 10/25/2020 Viewed: Netflix First viewing Note: I'm a pretty big fan of the Coen Brothers, but I haven't seen some of their recent movies lately after their True Grit remake. It's not because I don't want to, but I keep on forgetting to do so. I finally watched this movie on Netflix and it was great. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a very cool spin on the western genre by having it be an anthology film. The movie has great acting and solid production values as you would expect from a Coe"

"Joel and Ethan Coen continue to stretch the boundaries of their art, fashioning a distinctive blend of brutal comedy and existential despair, which the filmmakers understand to be one in the same. If many audiences continue to mistake the Coens’ despair for callousness, then that’s their loss, though it’s hard to fathom how one can miss the trembling vulnerability of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. An anthology of six stories emphasizing the oft-sentimentalized cruelty of the American West, "
