The Ballad of Buster Scruggs was surprisingly non-political. It is a dark humor film by the Coen brothers that depicts several short stories set in the ‘Wild West.’ There is some silliness, gore, and drama throughout the entire movie, but very little political correctness.
For instance, there are a few scenes with warrior American Indians, and refreshingly enough they behave how you’d imagine warrior Indians would behave! There is a story involving a timid woman heading west in need of men’s help (these characters also openly admit their belief in God and it wasn’t satirical). Plus, there are no handicapped-hispanic-transgender protagonists, there are no head strong women beating up hardened cow boys, and there is no black on white revenge porn that was so prominent in Django Unchained.
If you like Coen Brothers films and have over 2 hours to kill, this Netflix movie is worth it! It truly feels like you’re peering into what life may have been like in the Old West. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but most importantly you won’t be triggered by the PC b******t!
