"Not every story sticks - the shorter tales fared better than the extended ones - but still an enjoyable, typically Coenesque view of the Old West."

"I'm not sure if this would of been better as a tv show or movie but either way it's great. It starts strong with Tim Blake Nelson's singing Buster Scruggs and keeps going. I love the Coen's humor and dialogue. Some of the stories are a little too long but they are all so good. It's a shame that it was given a full theatrical release."

"I was quite enjoying the film in the beginning, the Buster Scruggs story was funny and entertaining while being violent enough to feel more serious. Then, as I was getting into it he dies. Now we have more mini stories, each me a and less entertaining. I may have been going in blind as I wasn't aware it would be like this, but it's a shame as I could have watched Buster for hours!"

"I really liked this movie.... I've always liked westerns anyway but this was quite refreshing to watch.... First story very light hearted and amusing, some of the others getting a bit darker leaving a bit to the imagination, I'll not spoil it for anybody but definately worth a watch if you like westerns at all. Well filmed too with great apsects and atmosphere."

CONTAINS SPOILERS 9/10   3 years ago
[9.3/10] When I think about the things that connect the six different vignettes that make up *The Ballad of Buster Scruggs*, the Western-themed anthology film from the Coen Bros., I come up with the same two themes that are present throughout the duo’s filmography: uncertainty and death. That’s More
