When the Coen brothers get together for a new project it always demands scrutiny and their first project partnering with Netflix is no exception. Taking on their first anthology, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (premiering on Netflix tomorrow, November 16th) features an impressive line-up of talent (including Tim Blake Nelson as the titular singing cowboy character) and a lot of tonally very different types of stories. All set in the old west, this had both highs and lows for our critics (Chris, Marco, Ben, and Alan) and it’s hard to talk about a collection of shorts without giving away much, but we do our best.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
