    ★★★★★

    Frankenheimer handles chaotic action with breathtaking energy and clarity; the car chases in this film are a master-class in action cinema. While Frankenheimer allows himself a few marvelous flourishes (the very best being a quick edit from blood splashed on a car window to an ice skater's red sweater), his direction is mostly understated here, but never less than precise.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★★

    Buster Scruggs may be THE Coen brothers film, encapsulating the their authorial voice as well as the thematic anxieties that drive them with astonishing precision.

    Small moments in this film carry the weight of entire motion pictures.
