The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Paperback / softback Book

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Paperback / softback


Death is always the issue-in life, and in the Western.

Joel and Ethan Coen's The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a movie of six Western stories.

In each, our common destination is approached by a different road.

Through each, diverse characters hurry for their final appointment: Oregon Trail-travelers, a gold prospector, a motley crew of stagecoach passengers, a high-plains drifting bank robber, even a singing cowboy.

These six stories escort them with a care that either respects, or mocks, the dignity of all. The film stars Tom Waits, James Franco, Liam Neeson, Tim Bake Nelson and Zoe Kazan and is shot with the harsh grandeur of the classic John Ford westerns.
