Not Necessarily The Nose: The Coen Brothers And 'The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs'

James Franco in the Coen brothers' 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.'

No Country for Old Men. Fargo. The Big Lebowski. Raising Arizona. O Brother, Where Art Thou? Miller's Crossing.

Over the past 35 years, Joel and Ethan Coen have reliably been among the most recognizable voices in moviemaking.

Their latest, the anthology western The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, hit Netflix last weekend.

This hour: a Noseish look at the work of the Coen brothers.
