The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a hilarious, clever and violent modern western by the Coen Brothers. It tells six different unpredictable stories set in the Wild West.
The script is flawless, the score is exceptional and the directing is masterful, as expected. The pace changes a couple of times, but for me it wasn’t an issue at all.
Of course I found some stories more entertaining than others, but each one of them brought something new to the table. The cast is great and the performances are on point.
I feel like the Coen Brothers are the masters of humor and dialogue. Every joke lands and whenever characters are talking, it’s a captivating experience for the viewer.
“A song never fails to ease my mind out here in the West, where the distances are great and the scenery monotonous.”
