First story:

Buster Stegerus walked slowly towards the picture winding the path,

The mountains and cliffs behind him reflect the twists and turns and dangers he has experienced in the past.

White coat, white horse, a guitar,

Playing elegant ballads, describing the white horse named "Dan" under his crotch,

And the name that once rang through the Westworld.

He is like the unknown guest in "The Wilderness",

walking in a dangerous world,

Enjoy the pleasure and revenge brought by bullets and blood.

He playfully kills challengers one by one,

singing happily

And chatter that is characteristic of talkers.

However, a dashing victory always brings self-confidence and inflation,

The price is forgetting the rules of the cowboy world and ignoring the consequences of losing a duel game.

"you seen, you play!"

The narcissistic face in the mirror calmly killed the last person who had offended him.

The premonition of death is approaching,

Black clothes, dark horses, melodious harmonica,

Confirmed eyes,

Faster, stronger, younger.

Same line:

"Do you need me to count down?"

The same defiant,

It's just that this time I couldn't see the action of the opponent drawing the gun.

The bullet went through his hat

together with the head.

The curious way depicts a wonderful scene of out of body,

A Bob Dylan-esque ballad sings the dirge of a sharpshooter's fate.

The new Undertaker wrote the prelude to him.

And this mourner,

Black clothes, black horses, the same elegant musical instruments,

Started the same adventure as Buster.

The appearance of the two cowboys is from far to near, but the scenery behind them is unknown whether the director did it deliberately. The mountains behind the cowboys in white are clearly visible and steep, and there is a walk interspersed in the mountain paths, the wasteland where the cowboys in black walk. The image of the mountain behind is blurred, as if it is not yet clear but equally dangerous.

Second story:

a trust bank,

slumped in a deserted wilderness,

With Koch's unique humor,

Absurd mockery of this endless evil.

Some hapless man played by James Frank,

With the rigid tug-of-war in cowboy films as always,

trust bank,

as far as he can see,

Like a fly staring at an easy lunch.

Draw, load, aim.

I don't want the boss to be a ruthless man,

A suit of pots and pans,

Not a perfect suit of armor,

You just can't hit him.

"Your bullet hit me in the pan"

"My butt hit you in the jaw",

The screen went black, thinking the story had come to an end.

Unexpectedly, it was the beginning of the absurd fate of the hapless,

The evidence does not cure him of his sin,

A hundred words can make him die,

Just like fate gives you encounters and never asks why.

Justice punishes the guilt of evil,

Who will accuse the frivolity and hypocrisy of justice.

Only the girl under the crowd (woman)

as far as the eye can see

Noble and holy.

The story is neither long nor short,

can be extended to a lifetime,

Shortness can also be frozen in the last moment by the lens:

He watched her,

A thousand years at a glance,

Live to death in the heart,

The noose around the neck suddenly tightened...

Standing in a deserted bank and a group of big men surrounded by a gorgeous girl (woman) in blue, the contrast is exactly the same, but the former is the beginning of the protagonist's bad luck, while the latter adds a little "life" to him. desire.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs quotes

  • Englishman (segment "The Mortal Remains"): You know the story, but people can't get enough of them, like little children. Because, well, they connect the stories to themselves, I suppose, and we all love hearing about ourselves, so long as the people in the stories are us, but not us. Not us in the end, especially.

  • Trapper (segment "The Mortal Remains"): You're bounty hunters.

    Englishman (segment "The Mortal Remains"): Literal man! Cruel man!... yes, fine: bounty hunters. An ugly title, really... as if emolument were the point. Is the cobbler not paid for his shoes? It's an honest calling!
