I don't see it here, surprisingly, but has anyone seen the latest Coen Brothers movie, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs?  It's showing this side of the Atlantic on Netflix. It's a series of stories, not one long story like True Grit, all based on a story book called The Ballad.... I watched it last night and really enjoyed it. It's had mixed reviews, some 5 star some 3 stars but it is a beautifully filmed movie, just what a Western should be. One or two stand out for me. The story with Liam Neeson and JonJo O'Neill is great. Interestingly, Neeson was born about 30 miles from me and JonJo O'Neill was born about 8 miles from me. Some great thing happen in the movie and will stick with you for days.

My wife and I started it the other day while we were on vacation, but we had to cut it short and haven't gotten the chance to start it again. I liked what I saw - beautifully filmed movie.

Watched it yesterday.
I'm a bit torn in my views. I don't like this short story approach in movies in general but in this one it kinda worked.
Nice little stories with most spiffing camera work.
All in all I was slightly dissapointed, but worth watching in my mind

I have always enjoyed the Cons films, so I gave it a shot. I enjoyed most of the stories, Buster Scuffs was the best of them, and still love their comedy.

We watched it on Netflix last night.  I thought the first two stories were hilarious.  The others, more tragic but still greatly entertaining. We liked it a lot.

My brother has a Netflix DVD membership (no streaming), but unfortunately this movie is apparently streaming only.  Dang.
