    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★

    I find it tough to review anthologies as one entity. But as a whole I just want feeling this.

    Everyone is so in love with the Coen brothers but I don't think this stands up to the rest of their work. Cinematography is beautiful and I'd expect nothing less. The story telling is ok, but I did find myself getting quite bored throughout. Westerns are not my thing and this quirky version of the western I find to be even…

    This movie is really scary!

    I remember watching it as a child and being in disgust. It was so shocking to see this little girl as the embodiment of Satan.
    Now rewatching is as an adult I find out not only is it still scary, but it's actually a good film! It is still very surprising to see and hear some of the things that Linda Blair does. Masturbating with a cross is right up there with some of the…
