The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” is a great film set in the atmosphere of a western – it consists of six stories, each of which is a separate story set in the Wild West. They are all connected with each other and balance between a joke, absurdity and a philosophical treatise. Not everyone will like it, because he is sometimes talkative, but this is the quintessence of the Coen brothers.
“Bird Box” tells the story of a world where a mysterious force decimates the world’s population. No one knows where it came from, no one knows what is the cause, but only one thing is certain – when you see it, you will take your own life. The main character is Malorie, who has to flee with her two children down a treacherous river to the only place that can provide them with shelter. Throughout the journey, the fugitives must be blindfolded, which complicates it a bit.
“Annihilation” is a SF film directed by Aleks Garland, the creator of “Ex Machina”. Lena – a biologist and ex-soldier – tries to unravel the mystery of her husband’s disappearance in Zone X, a hostile and mysterious place that stretches along the American coast. For this reason, she joins the group that intends to look inside her. On site, the members of the expedition discover beautiful landscapes and creatures unheard of in the normal world that threaten their lives and can affect their minds.
“Without a Word” is controversial, though for me – a successful – a film by Duncan Jones, remembered mainly from the brilliant “Moon”. The action of the film takes place in futuristic Berlin, and the main character is the bartender Leo. As a child, he had a serious accident that turned him into a mute. Since then, he has faced a streak of failures in his life, with the only bright spot being his beautiful girlfriend, Naadirah. At one point, the woman disappears without a trace, and Leo goes to search.
