Hitting Netflix on February 1st, Velvet Buzzsaw certainly has gained a bit of attention. Circling around a self-absorbed art scene, the film is very much a satire mixed with horror. These artists greed comes back to bite them, when they take advantage of an unknown, and deceased, artists’ paintings, which also just happen to be painted with human blood. Filmmaker Dan Gilroy, not only sets up a glossy and absurdly shallow scenario, but does so with some real star power behind him. Velvet Buzzsaw features Jake Gyllenhaal, John Malkovich, Renee, Russo, Zawe Ashton, Toni Collette, and Natalia Dyer. With a cast like this combined with the perfect horror setup, what could go wrong?
Writer/director Dan Gilroy and leading man Jake Gyllenhaal first showed us their collective dark side with 2014’s Nightcrawler. Set in the seedy underworld of Los Angeles, the subversive crime thriller became an instant critical darling and earned about five times its meager budget at the box office. Now, the two are re-teaming for a new film which captures the horrors of the modern art scene.
Netflix just released a new trailer today for Velvet Buzzsaw, a movie where, “mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.” In the clip, tapestries come to life to maim, mangle, and burn their highfalutin owners. The trailer shows off Gilroy’s signature blend of heightened realism, satire, and dark imagery, and you can watch the entire clip for yourself below: read more
