Excerpt: I can’t say I loved The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, but I still very much admire everything that went into making the film, and it still has the kind of uniquely entertaining and thoughtful experience that only the Coens could provide.
Excerpt: Imagine the nerve required to make your best character only one-sixth of your movie. The rest had better be good. It is! I do not claim all of the six short stories are as good as “Buster Scruggs”, they are not, but they are all mesmerizing and delivered in that peculiar Coen brothers method. It’s not six Coen films for the price of one; it feels like six stories the brothers had to get out of them somehow.
