GUEST,.gargoyle Review: Ballad of Buster Scruggs (4) Review: Ballad of Buster Scruggs 18 Nov 18


The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Other Tales of the American Frontier



This film of six small quirky stories, spliced together as chapters of a book was released by Netflix on November 16, 2018. "Rotten Tomatoes" gave it scored of 92....I
rate it 96....just under "O Brother Where Art Thou?"

Set in the western US after the Civil War the visuals are good, cinemaphy superior....however, it is the musical score that sets it appart.

Anyone familar with Lomax will have a hoot and a hollar with this film's play and humor with traditional tunes.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

With a running time of 133 it held my attention for 50 minutes ...which is double by usual tube distance. I will finish it another day.
