Fate is impermanent

Destiny is a very wonderful thing. It is like walking, sometimes accidentally crossing the road or falling into a pit. Sometimes I just sing a song slowly, I thought I was going to sing like this, but I didn't expect it to stop abruptly. Life is actually full of too many unexpected things, sometimes it feels like an accident, but if you think about it carefully, it is actually a necessity. Facing death, what kind of attitude is, sometimes more or less determines all kinds of life. But fate is always so impermanent sometimes that it makes you feel the presence of God.

The footage and scenery of the film are wonderful. The music is also great.

    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. Story 1 has the taste of [Drunk Township Folk Ballad], Story 2 is a joke [The Bad and the Bad], Story 3 is like the real version of [Freak], Story 4 is like a variation of the comedy version of [Blood and Sands], and Story 5 is the most complete and most complete. resignedly. Story 6 is reminiscent of [ghost carriage], full of gothic style. 4. Flip the book as the transition from the beginning to the end and the transition, giving people the pleasure of reading. 5. Confessions of the Bounty Killer/Death at the end (telling the story before the attack is attractive) is both charming and reflexive, just as we were finally caught up in the story of the Coen brothers and fell into the abyss. (9.5/10)

    11.18 A film can be turned into a TV series (clear and complete), and a film can be turned back into a short film (abstract and fragmented). There is a sense of inadequacy in short stories. Like watching Hitchcock Playhouse. It is complicated and difficult to understand, and it is standard in human society. A strange texture can be seen on any section. Girls and gold mines. There is inexplicable sadness and hidden tragedy in the ballads.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs quotes

  • 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. I figure that's just a human material, and him that finds in it cause for anger and dismay is just a fool for expecting better.

  • Alice Longabaugh (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled): Gilbert had a saying for any situation. A ready bit of wisdom. He was very certain.

    Billy Knapp (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled"): He was a doughface?

    Alice Longabaugh (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled): ...He had fixed political beliefs. All of his beliefs were quite fixed. He would upbraid me for being wishy-washy. I never had his certainties. I suppose it is a defect.

    Billy Knapp (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled"): I don't think it's a defect at all. Oh no. Uncertainty. That is appropriate for matters of this world. Only regarding the next are vouchsafed certainty.

    Alice Longabaugh (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled): Yes.

    Billy Knapp (segment "The Gal Who Got Rattled"): I believe certainty regarding that which we can see and touch, it is seldom justified, if ever. Down the ages, from our remote past, what certainties survive? And yet we hurry to fashion new ones. Wanting their comfort. Certainty... is the easy path. Just as you said.
