A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Tanmay ShuklaFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsThe Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a Western anthology film directed by Coen brothers. The duration of each chapter varies and so does their quality. The first two chapters, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Near Algodonespay pay homage to Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West and George Hill’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, respectively. They are thoroughly entertaining and well executed. The acting, the costumes, the set design and art work, the music by Coen brothers’ long time collaborator Carter Burwell is fantastic. Coens also use the extreme wide shots to extreme close ups taking us back ...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureBy Vivaan ShahI think the reason I love the movies is primarily due to The Farrelly Brothers. They are a director brother duo who have made films like Dumb and Dumber, Me, Myself and Irene, and There’s Something about Mary. They were really the first guys who made me realize what it is that a director does, and how you can tell apart a particular director's work just by the way the film looks. Also what distinguished their movies from a child's point of view in the 90s is that their two collaborations with Jim Carrey had him in short hair as opposed to his luxurious tresses in other films from the period. I even tried to imitate what Harlan Williams' state tr...

It is the freshness of perspective, place and people that we don’t get to see on the big screen very often and rarely from a voice as striking and sharp as Zhangke’s. I didn’t know what to expect from Jia and I came out pleasantly surprised, thoroughly satisfied. It is absorbing and emotionally charging. It is quite funny too in unexpected situations. Jia Zhangke’s direction is not driven by style; it’s driven by the effect. He is very calculative in his directorial choices.Qiao (played by Zhao Tao) ...

The director Hirokazu Koreeda is not experimenting with the elements of film, he is captain of the ship—he knows exactly where he wants to go and the path he is going to follow. He is confident and patient as a filmmaker. It is all about the screenplay. It’s so well written that there is no need for any non-linear narrative, fancy camerawork, disorienting editing or extravagant production. What it needed was excellent acting and fastidious direction which it has and you have a mas...
