The Ballad of Buster Scruggs ★★★★

“PAN SHOT!!!!!!!”

I love the Coen Brothers so much and this is the most Coen Brothers movie that could ever be made. Extremely nihilistic, beautiful, funny, sharp, well-directed, even upsetting at times.

It’s also so long. If this were just three or four of the stories, it would easily be my favorite movie of the year. As much as I fully believe it should be a TV series instead of a singular movie, I also think it’s so beautiful that it should be seen in a theater if you can manage it.
