What I see is Cohen's brilliance

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs". 7 points. Produced by the Coen Brothers, of course, it must be a good product. It's my favorite Western, but it's a combination of six short stories, each of which is well conceived, especially the first, full of tragic romanticism. The duel will always be the most important element of Westerns. The second story played by Fu Lanlan was a bit of a spoof. And Liam Neeson's third story is much darker. People are not as good as chickens. The work of the Coen brothers is worth a long vacation to focus on.

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!
