Watch The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
- 2 hr 13 min
This anthology film tells six unconnected stories set in the American Old West. The film is a product of Joel and Ethan Coen, and it incorporates the brothers' usual visual style, violent tendencies and offbeat humor. Buster Scruggs, a cheerful singing cowboy, arrives at an isolated cantina full of outlaws where he exchanges insults with another patron before effortlessly shooting everyone as they reach for their guns. Buster then wanders into Frenchman's Gulch and enters a saloon, leaving his guns at the door to comply with its no firearms policy. He joins a game of poker that a player has suddenly left, but discovers the player vacated the seat after being dealt the infamous dead man's hand, which the other players insist Buster play now that he has seen the cards. When Buster refuses, a large menacing player named Joe stands and draws a concealed pistol.
