The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Coen Brothers labour of love arrives on Netflix after a long gestating development extending back over 20 years.  The problem is that The Ballad of Buster Scruggs just wasn’t worth it.   Disjointed with no real through line, Scruggs is neither clever, funny or weird enough to warrant its over long run time, over indulgence or lack of discipline on display here.  Yup the cast are predictably good but the film seems pretty flat and televisual (which is what the film was originally destined for)  and has no real bite.   Sadly a rare Coen Brothers miss.

Best Bit: The Buster Scruggs sequence

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: O Brother Where Art Thou?, True Grit, The Three Amigos
