45 Netflix Original Movies Well Worth A Watch
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
The Coen brothers are another pair of directors that had a long career before they ever worked with Netflix. While The Ballad of Buster Scruggs isn’t the pinnacle of their work, it’s nonetheless a great meditation on violence, death, and the stories we tell about the old west.
The Coens have always been really good at highlighting the horrific implications of violence. Their films are about the nature of good and evil. This film, in particular, considers who we define as a hero. It tells six short stories that both tie into and reflect on one another.
