“The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs”
What did you stream this weekend, partner? Well, the guys on Be Reel saddled up and saw the new Coen Bros movie, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, an anthology film set upon a very Coen Bros frontier. We’ve got a singing sharp shooter, a mumbling and lucky-as-hell prospector, and a stagecoach bound for hell. Chance and Noah chat about what distinguishes a topflight Coen movie, our favorites from the film’s dozens of memorable performances, and speculate why Buster Scruggs might have originally been sold as a mini-series.
