REVIEW: Velvet Buzzsaw

Published

on

Netflix recently dropped a promising looking horror/thriller with a star-studded cast called ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ which, according to The Sun, was based on a true story…of sorts.

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, John Malkovich, Zawe Ashton, Toni Collette, Rene Russo, and Natalie Dyer and while it starts off slow, it evolves into a more sinister movie.

According to the synopsis: “After paintings by an unknown artist are discovered, a supernatural force enacts revenge on those who have allowed their greed to get in the way of art.”

Gyllenhaal excels in his role of art critic Morf Vandewalt and the support of performances from his fellow cast mates make this movie watchable, at the very least.

Unfortunately, it takes far too long to get to any real meaty parts, leaving the overall movie kind of hollow.

However, there are enough visually-appealing scenes that will hold your interest to the very end, even if the plot doesn’t do enough to reel you in.
