  • The ballad of Buster Scruggs

    I watched this movie on Netflix a while back and it’s so unusual it has stayed with me.
    It’s a western setting with I think 5 loosely linked stories each has a ballad associated with it there are some shocking scenes, the Liam Neeson story, but the last story in the coach is especially haunting
    Here is the ballad from it.

    Thanks for that, String! That ballad must be the latest incarnation of this ancient one:

      String:

      Their first film ( The Coen Brothers, that is) Blood Simple is worth watching. Not sure if you or Gary have seen it.
