The story is about death. Unknown and predicted death.

A sharpshooter who has roamed the world, with unique skills and high-profile self-confidence. Cheerful and uninhibited songs accompany him in the wilderness. The meaning of his life seems to be just looking for another him. He finally died under the muzzle of another gun, and he died without any regrets, and the angel's wings took him to another world.

As for the robber, the crime made him accept death, and even if he was lucky enough to pass by death for the first time, he could not escape his fate. So he calmly faced the second hanging that did not belong to him, and was even deeply happy to see the beautiful woman before his death.

The boy with the broken arm sang "the people enjoy the rule of the people" passionately, revealing deep sadness and despair. He is an ant, "the people enjoy the rule of the people" in the idealist's mind, but he is inferior to a rooster. The final picture, the rushing river, the empty seat on the carriage and a live rooster... This is universal cruelty.

The innocent and ignorant girl died simply and neatly with the gun in her hand, her slightly opened eyes and the black hole between her eyebrows, in the vast and desolate land, she was even more sad and powerless. She died of innocence and ignorance, and the world in her eyes was only the motto and advice of others, and she couldn't see it clearly and couldn't recognize it.

When the whole back of the gold digger was smeared bright red with blood, I thought he was dead for a while. But he didn't, he was accumulating his last strength, he was waiting for the moment, he was going to fight one last time. Just like he spent his whole life looking for gold, never giving up. In the final struggle, the attacker finally died. He was so complacent that he thought that a masterpiece that was easily available, but achieved his own death. The old man pulled the horse and left the gold mine. The open space where the corpses were buried will grow lush green grass, smart deer, alert owls, and playful butterflies... This beautiful canyon is back to its former vitality. In the vast universe, how insignificant human beings are, all the lost things that you have tried your best to have are silently dissolved in the process of the growth of all things.

No matter what kind of person, what kind of life, will eventually go to death. Without exception. The carriage leading to the end finally stopped, and the debate about human life in the car came to an abrupt end. The soul catcher strode into the inn, carrying the people crowded on top of the carriage. The people in the car were frightened and hesitated, but had no choice. The carriage left, and the last person closed the door and walked to the finish line calmly.

Natural things are endless, if everything is eternal return, then death is also new life.

The last thing I want to say is the beauty of the picture is pleasing to the eye.

    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)

    The Coen brothers filmed for Netflix. The correct way to open it should be to watch it as an American TV series. There are 6 American TV series, each with a different style. They are all old stories from the American West, so it is called an anthology of poetry. The brothers are very casual this time, their aesthetic style has been brought to the extreme, and they are more free to make dramas. They don't want to write movie scripts as tightly as they can be their own directors in the hands of Netflix. I love the episode of Zoe Kazan the most. It was once very romantic, but I didn’t expect the result to be like this. Maybe this was the American West back then. I knew that there was no romance in the world of the Coen Brothers, it was always absurd and dark. .

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!
