Following, in "All Gold Canyon", an unsuccessful, silver-haired prospector is convinced that his luck is going to change in the middle of nowhere.

Finally, in "The Mortal Remains", five passengers crammed in a stagecoach share life philosophies, only to realise that looks can be deceiving.

As with the Coens' oeuvre on the whole, the various stories are unified by an impressive sense of craft and a lamentable sense of smugness.

It's disappointing that the Coens don't even try to upend any classic Western clichés in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs - they apply some grim humor to various situations, but that's about it.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs feels like the Coen brothers' B-sides compilation... . That smugness to which the Coens are susceptible is in plentiful supply here.
