The ending of the Coen brothers' work is always unpredictable. Cliff-style ending, let people who want to know the ending and those who don't want to know the ending pass the customs outside. You have to know a principle. Western stories never need to know the story. This time, the Coen brothers kindly told a few stories, but After that, the bad taste came again. The sixth story is really unpredictable, with layers of details wrapped in it. At the moment when the last gate is opened, no one opens the door for the lady. The reliefs of angels and goats on the door indicate that the gate is used by both angels and demons. The first story at the beginning begins with the ascension of angels, and ends with the opening and closing of the demon gate. When the demon closes the door, it will always make people shudder. I like gold panning stories the most, pure as angels, and least like circus stories, dark like demons, the whole story is just like the name, the angels come talking about the harp, and the demons go with their souls. Cohen will never leave you with audiovisual enjoyment, but will trap you in their films to ponder. The sixth story, all the finishing touches, the carriage does not stop, because the undead is driving, all the ramblings are asking you to repay the audio-visual pleasure of the previous five levels. There are not many people who understand, and they don't need many.

The emotional control of the whole movie is very good, and the director walks backwards.

    A wild tale of the American West, where life and death change like a roulette wheel. Although it doesn't make much sense, the black style throughout is very Coen brothers. PS As expected, the shorter the story, the more testing the screenwriter will be~~~~~

    It's uneven, and it's a really bad part in the Cohen dimension. The difficulty of accumulating six short-form genre reversals is exponentially more difficult than maintaining one feature-length genre reversal.

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.
