Lugubrious dark humour pervades the Liam Neeson starrer Meal Ticket, a gothic tale about two weary travelling performers.

Tom Waits mines a rich seam of humour.

“The Gal Who Got Rattled”
Bill Heck (Billy Knapp)
Zoe Kazan (Alice Longabaugh)

Saul Rubinek (Frenchman)
Chelcie Ross (Trapper)

Cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel (Inside Llewyn DavisDarkest Hour) shot the film with the Arri Alexa camera, making The Ballad of Buster Scruggs the Coens’ first-ever digital photography production.
