Netflix Original: ‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ Preview

Review Ethan / 2023-02-19 11:01:28

The latest Coen Brothers film is coming out on the 16th November. The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs is only a month away from release so here’s our preview!

It premiered recently at the 75th Venice International Film Festival, which took place on 31 August. Written and directed by the Coen Brothers, this is the 20th film they’ve directed and this is their first film set in the “Wild West.”

How does the plot work?

Six chapters are included, with each chapter telling a unique story about the wild frontier. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs tells the story of a sharp-shooting songster.

In Near Algodones, a wannabe bank robber gets his due and then some.

Tickets for Meals tells the story of two tired traveling performers.

All Gold Canyon is a story about a prospector mining for gold.

A woman finds an unexpected promise of love, along with a dose of life’s cruel irony, on a wagon train journey across the prairies in A Gal Who Was Rattled.

Finally, ghostly laughs haunt The Mortal Remains as a woman rains judgment upon a motley crew of strangers undertaking a final carriage ride.

Which actor is part of the cast?

As the film is split into 6 chapters, we thought it’d be easier to split the main cast into 6 equal parts as well:
