A new Coen brothers movie is always a cause for celebration. Their last film "Hail Caesar" didn't strike my fancy, but I do mean to revisit it eventually, but the brothers are nothing less than masters as far as I'm concerned, they have released a ridiculous amount of great movies over their 35+ year movie career. The Coen pantheon, in case you're wondering: No Country For Old Men, Inside Llewyn Davis, Fargo, The Big Lebowski and Barton Fink. 

All this brings us to the news that The New York Film Festival announced its main slate of programming today, which will include Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” followup “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Claire Denis’ first English-language movie, the sci-fi “High Life” and, perhaps most intriguingly, the Coen brothers’ Netflix-produced anthology Western “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” 

"Scruggs," which was originally conceived as a six-part Netflix anthology series and is now a feature film using an anthology structure, will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and bypass both Telluride and Toronto on its way to New York for the festival, which takes place in October.
The six segments are describe on Wikipedia as follows:
(1) “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” — The story of a singing cowboy named Buster Scruggs (Tim Blake Nelson);
(2) “Near Algodones” — A high-plains drifter whose own fecklessness dogs his attempts at bank robbery and cattle driving, costarring James Franco, Ralph Ineson and Stephen Root;
(3) “Meal Ticket” — The story of an actor and impresario of a traveling show;
(4) “All Gold Canyon”– A prospector (possibly Tom Waits) happily finds a gold seam but then unhappily finds an evil encroacher;
(5) “The Gal Who Got Rattld” — The story of two trail bosses on the Oregon Trail and a woman on the wagon train who needs the help of one of them and who might be a marriage prospect for the other, w/ Zoe Kazan and Jackamoe Buzzell; and
(6) “The Mortal Remains” — Five very different passengers find themselves on a stagecoach to a mysterious destination w/ Tyne Daly, Saul Rubinek.
