I love the films of Joel and Ethan Coen and they have written and directed each of the six segments in the film. These are two of my favorite filmmakers in Hollywood with such a wonderful talent for telling stories developing fun quirky characters.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a Netflix film that is slated for a theatrical release on November 16th.
