Highly Suspect Reviews: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

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.
