Well first off the title is only about the first vignette. So if you are coming to see the Ballad of Buster Scruggs and he dies ten minutes into the movie, you ask yourself why didn’t they say “and others”?
So the movie then goes on to show more varmints getting hanged shot and left in the dust. All were watchable except the last one which fell flat. Tyne Daly no less.
Only the Coen Brothers could make this movie since Mel Brooks is too old. But caary on the tradition of storytelling fellas, you guys still can bring it.
