The ballad of Buster Scruggs
By Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, including Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Liam Neeson, Tom Waits, Zoe Kazan and Tyne Daly.
WESTERN To the brothers Joel and Ethan Coen can make the West in different vintage, we then know "True Grit" and "No Country For Old Men". And in "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" – from the beginning it was thought to be an anthology in six parts but then trimmed down to a feature film with independent stories about the wild west – they are further captivating the love of the genre.
The movie begins with the chapter "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs", about a singing revolverman (Tim Blake Nelson). Then follows "Near Algodones", with James Franco like a cowboy who has to regret that he robbed a bank. "Meal ticket" is about a round trip impressionary (Liam Neeson) with a limp man (Harry Melling) as the only act. In "All gold canyon" is playing Tom Waits a gold star who receives an unwelcome visit. The movie's first woman appears in "The Crazy Who Got Rattled", there Zoe Kazan Brides in an unfortunate love story from the prairie. And in "The mortal remains" a brutal figure shows a final wagon ride.
The tone varies, but common to all the chapters is the imminent threat of evil, sudden death and the macabre glimpse of the eye.
A cheerfully filmed, humorous and playful cynical storybook for adults.
"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" is premiere on Netflix on November 16th.
