The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
Netflix published the trailer of the picture “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”, made by the Cohen brothers.
The film is a collection of six short stories about life in provincial towns in the Wild West. The movie received its name in honor of the hero of one of the short stories–the singing cowboy Buster Scruggs. The main roles in the film were played by James Franco, Liam Neeson, David Krumholtz.
According to the brothers, they always loved anthology films, especially Italian ones, made in the 1960s. “With our anthology of Western stories, we tried to do something similar and attract the best directors of modern cinema. Fortunately for us, they both agreed,” the Coen’s said. Initially, the directors planned to shoot the series, but eventually turned it into a two-hour film.
On Netflix, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” will be released on November 16, 2018.
