WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
A collection of six stories set in the Old West, including that of sharp-shooting singer Buster Scruggs (Nelson), a bank robber (Franco), two weary travelling performers (Neeson and Melling), a prospector (Waits) mining for gold, a lovestruck woman (Kazan), and a Lady (Daly) who reigns judgement on a wagon full of strangers…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Originally developed as their first Netflix miniseries, the Coen Brothers have since reedited The Ballad of Buster Scruggs down to a single anthology movie, filled with their usual quirky nature and heavy fascination for the Old West.
