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 old celluloid, the digital photography displayed in this movie was beautiful and, in my opinion, it was the most gorgeous movie delivered by the Coen brothers so far. Concerning the little stories they gave us, to be honest, even though they were not bad, none of them really impressed me. The first one dealing with Buster Scruggs himself was by far the best one but all the others were going from just decent to actually almost weak. Eventually, the whole thing gave the feeling that the brothers couldn't come up with one really good story so they compiled a bunch of rather half-baked tales together. The best example would be the segment 'Meal Ticket'. I mean, it wasn't really bad but the outcome was rather predictable and it didn't seem to be a really smart choice to have half of the running time with Harrison repeating again and again his text. Eventually, it's a good example showing that most of these tales were never really about the plot but about mixing the Western genre with the typical Coen mood and quirkyness. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in the Coen brothers's work.
