What kind of drama is life

Darlene 2022-04-21 09:02:03

A segmented movie, the story is small and exquisite, but it is full of aftertaste after watching it.

The death of a quick shooter, the death of a bank robber, the death of a gold digger, the death of a showman with no hands and feet, the death of a convoy bodyguard's fiancée, until the debaucher, the devout, the hunter sits in death on the car.

It seems absurd and ridiculous, but it is indeed inevitable. The whole life seems to be bland, but the plot of the dramatic absurdity is more terrifying than the movie, so even if the filmmakers pick out those trivial things, it is shocking enough.

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!
