    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs-7.5 or an 8.0 maybe

    A duo who are among my favorite directors. I only have 4 left to see from them. Their body of work speaks for itself although I'm not sure if they're misanthropes like some say they are.

    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on

    Yeah, that is impressive, though I'd swap your score for Fargo around with the one for No Country, personally.

    Fargo is a top 10 of all time movie for me. I think it's a perfect amalgamation of their comedic and dramatic styles, and the one that most personifies a Coen brothers joint. No Country for Old Men is great too, and the fact that I wouldn't even put it in their own top 10 shows what a ridiculous amount of quality they've produced.

    Fargo is near top 10 of all time for me too and I thought NCfOM is just a solid film and nothing spectacular. Blood Simple is my favorite Coen's.

    Heh heh, no I don't get the love. I've seen this film many times before. Fargo and Blood Simple are unique.

    The struggle in NCfOM is all external - it's just a plain war. The struggles in Fargo and Blood Simple are internal - they're insurrection.

    I thought I was the only one who loved Blood Simple a lot.
