Despite the recognition of the Coen brothers as some of the most important filmmakers of our time, I will not are a great connoisseur of their creativity and watched a few of them movies. The ballad of Buster Scruggs I decided to watch just because I liked the trailer. I didn't know the Directors are the coens, so expect something entertaining, and course in viewing began to worry that came to, and was going off, but the skills of talented Directors made me look up to end.

The ballad of Buster Scruggs is the film is an anthology consisting of stories (ballad) in the style of O. Henry, dedicated to the development and survival the so-called Wild West. All these different stories give a clear understanding of how lived what are actually built America. To send the outcasts of society, not found in the civilized world.

These people are from different countries were thrown into unusable agriculture area where were forced to earn money as know, showing the utmost ingenuity. Looking for each of these characters is seen just emerging sectors of the economy and culture. Someone is lucky more, someone less, and even if the person is on the right way is still not give full guarantee of success, because in this world very much depends on the case.

It is technically a good movie. Yeah, he shines with luxury and delights. It simple but is quite accurate. Costumes, music, endless desert — all to place creates a genuine atmosphere of the Wild West. But importantly, in any film, this script. All simple but interesting even able to trigger emotions, although some I found prolonged.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is only one nomination for the Oscar. You know, maybe I am wrong, because I until I watched the other Oscar movies this season, but knowing the trends, suggest that the Academy undeservedly it is not noticed, and he probably one of the best movies of 2018, and no no one top for the past year, all First players and Wars infinity in them for some reason the place was. Of course, I would not called it a masterpiece, but it is definitely better than these dummies.

"The ballad of Buster Scruggs" — is composed of six very short stories "Kohanovsky" the story of the Wild West. For two hours, you will manage to laugh and to cry, and come with delight. And even though this often occurs at the time of watching the film the Cohens, everything here is entertaining, so as stories here presented in a completely different genres. There are a classic genre brothers — ironic a black Comedy, there are dark tragedy, an absurdist tragicomedy and finally metaphysical philosophical parable. At the same time, each Chapter brings a certain promise, some fundamental thought.

"The ballad of Buster Scruggs" — the first Chapter tells the story of a nice singer and marksmen Buster the Scruggs. Not even worth talking about (well, that the priests!), what each Chapter beautiful cinematography and wonderful music, which often abounds in cowboy songs. Carter Burwell as always helped to add atmosphere. Tim Blake Nelson — beautiful. Extremely grotesque and charming character. This Novella carries a very vital message — there is always a "bigger fish". There will always be people who would be better to shoot, run or to learn. And always important is realize be ready. As they say "who warned that is armed". The first Chapter is very amusing and carefree, she like draws the audience into this incredible adventure at the Wild West.

"Under Algodonera" — second same ironical and funny novel. In we are seeing same the classic story of Western — see the unfortunate robber in the performance of James Franco. And again, everything is easy and relaxed. And the second Chapter in a row fun the end) It is in this Chapter can be seen leafless online stage, in which the main character is going to hang with a pair of robbers, one of them is crying next to the Franco. Last turns with a grin she asks him: "First time, huh?" This is the shortest driving the head of the all. It carries his idea of that life — it's a boomerang, and if you are destined to be punished, you it sooner or later will suffer. Also, this thought can send us to antiquity, and her favorite theme of the inevitability of fate.

"Sign in food" — dark tragic story of the show business. Not want to go in details, because in this novel it is important to observe the magnificent directing the Coen, which almost without words show the human rigidity and greed. In the lead roles here Liam Neeson and fully reincarnated Dudley from  the"Harry Potter". Last I saw, to say the least, surprised. And most importantly played he it's great his face endings — simply Bravo!

"All Gold Canyon". This fourth account Novella I liked the most. In we watching old Tom waits, who came in a picturesque town trying to find there are gold. Such a classic story in the style of Jack London. But as done? Despite this novel I like immersed in another world. We watching the beautiful landscapes and can not to admire the beauty of the local landscapes. The story of the old prospector will captivate you with the romance of the Wild West, but not that the romance that was previous "ballads", and more sublime and, I can even say, philosophical. In my opinion, this Novella brings a little more sense than the previous one. First, of course, the leading idea here in that the work will reward you. And even if you will fall in misery, resisting them, you will be able to survive and go home with the award. Secondly, the Kohanim here, showing respect to nature, admiring its beauty and respecting its power. Incredibly atmospheric and life-affirming story that stuck with me in memory longer than the others.

"The girl scared" — fifth lightly laced head. In we observed the history of people travelling for the prairies with a caravan and developed on the background of this love story. But the priests would not by Priests, if not done in this rather dull novel, very ironic and cruel end. This Chapter talks about what stupid people is extremely difficult to survive in our world. Also slightly reverting to the second Chapter — the theme of fate. To which are horrible matches in the life and to what good intentions can turn into a tragedy.

"The remains" — the final, the sixth and most difficult novel of all. In this Chapter Cohen talks about the nature of death. A story could be a metaphor for the final journey of man to the same light in the end of the tunnel. Terrible philosophical parable about that everyone finally, will die. And we have don't care cards, hunting, work, husband and other everyday Hobbies.

On the final credits I again admired as feature this film and was upset about that Cohen decided to make a movie, but not a show — two hours very little crime! I want more! I want more feel the adventurous spirit and watching the unsuccessful robbers, poor artists and the old prospectors. It is the picture has definitely become one of my favorite the Cohens. I you highly recommend)

Looking forward to what delights await this picture. Many opinions and words will be made after the screenings. And honored. The picture is worth it. She now, after making first steps on the world becomes a legend. We are witnesses to this. Hockey stars in the United States are after a career in the Hall of Fame. Well, of course, the most worthy and somewhere even the Great. This ribbon place themselves booked already now. In your Hall of Fame. The Golden regiment Golden Fund, Classic in life — whatever you prefer the exhaust before parting brothers, is another masterpiece of the place.

The audience of six short stories. And the directing tandem of the brothers, as saying goes, it kills two birds with one stone — "the wolves are fed and the sheep intact". Talking about the variety of tastes gathered at the screen public — choose what the mind and heart closer enjoy what is happening. What you will be thrilled about that that will amuse, but pleasures leave it absolutely.

So made the authors? The history of the development of the Wild West in front of us. So easy? Not really. A sketchbook filled with images, familiar and not very the audience. On-screen characters living hardly not an independent life in the new framing. Copying each other for decades walking with us in foot, here provided so that getting to know them we are touched from the delight. Form. The form chosen supply is important. It was she, amused. So don't accidentally first novel — humorous irony — set the pace serve the development of the plot view. Hooked? So You on hook — on the beaten path.

Bow to You from Clint Eastwood — frames newsreel duels — colt holster why the extra words — man or what? Saw Mel Gibson with a loop neck the croup of the horse? Yes, of course I remember it Maverick, roguish scoundrels, the card of the juggler. He also, reports You hi... And that's hardly not Gypsy Phaeton nomadic wandering artists — the first sign of the entertainment business. And the audience listens listening. Everyone is looking for their niche, everyone determines their own destiny. Merry, gentlemen good luck romp through the continent. Love to dig in the ground? Want some gold to cut down on the easy? Please come to the flowing river — the diligence will be rewarded... And so on, and so on. People living in finding themselves workshop brush makers portrayal of nuances.

Not jokes if we listen to, I thought?

The First joke — a duel.

Anecdote the Second — robbery.

Anecdote the Third — business.

Fourth — a prospector.

Fifth — the settlers.

Sixth — passengers.

Archetypes, ancestors of today's Americans in front of us: arrow, Bank, brigands, miners, entertainers, immigrants, hunters, they all here, all before my eyes. Of them is woven the star-spangled flag of the country. The history of them, turn over the pages of stories books, the gift of grateful readers. This recalled the sketches of Anton Chekhov and his turning a whirlwind for the characters of his contemporaries. Inhabitants in all human manifestations. And in sorrow and in joy. In the vices and passions. Here, too, passion, but the passion of the people of another continent. Other people, other species and the main purpose — MONEY. Hardly not that the keynote on the past two hours. What do then went to a new continent in search of a better life. Rich. To get rich in any way.

The beauty of the surrounding area, as they say, attached. Majestic nature is striking pristine splendor. Shallow river with clear water, fish on the pavement of pebbles as strolling playboy, the sun falling in peal cut the hills of the valley, Savannah breathable rocky cliffs... — highly artistic paintings landscape painting has absorbed in itself the human caravans and section us about your storage...

One of the best films of the season.

Monumental movie.
