    1. One of the best-sounding & good-looking movies of the year, or a melodious, lively, witty or mournful and solemn soundtrack, a majestic and desolate natural landscape (especially excellent at night), and a textbook-level audio-visual language, everything is just right. 2. The classic scenes of Western films such as bar battles, street duels, bank robbery, execution field fighting methods, gold mining, confrontation with Indians, carriage dialogues, etc. are all on stage, but the Coen brothers' iconic existential philosophy and black humor make it To be a counter-genre that plays with viewer expectations, overflowing with absurdity, chance, loneliness, pathos and death. 3.

    Buster Scruggs (segment "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"): [atop his horse in bright white duds] A song never fails to ease my mind out here in the West, where the distances are great and the scenery monotonous.

    Buster Scruggs (segment "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"): Maybe some of y'all have heard of me. Buster Scruggs, known to some as the San Saba Songbird. I got other handles, nicknames, appellations, and cognomens. But this one here I don't consider to be even halfway earned.

    Buster Scruggs (segment "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"): "Misanthrope"? I don't hate my fellow man, even when he's tiresome and surly and tries to cheat at poker.
