The Ballad of Buster Scruggs: Film Review

I don’t love everything Joel and Ethan Coen make. They are extremely hit and miss with me, and that’s the perfect way to describe The Ballad of Buster Scruggs – an anthology western movie telling six tales which are wildly inconsistent in tone and entertainment value.
