Subject: RE: Review: Ballad of Buster Scruggs
I caught it on Netflix a couple of days ago - great fun and sad in equal parts.

The six segments are ironic/quirky takes on conventional "western" themes - the singing cowboy, the last-minute saving from hanging, the wagon train, the gold prospector, the passengers in a stagecoach, etc. And Tom Waits is indeed excellent.

Well worth seeing.
