Needed to combine the horror with class conflict. Gilroy wasn't quite ready to go their despite teasing he would. He has the liberal mentality of woe is everything but recoils from looking at the root cause for more than a moment before he feels uncomfortable. It is beginning to show in his films. If want's to get back his bitting edge he had in night-crawler he has to get over his own personal uncomfortably.
This made me want to scratch my eyes out. One of the most pretentious and arrogant films I have ever seen. "Ohhhh critics are so mean. :( They are against art. :( All of them are arrogant and suck!!! :(" Ugh, please, get over yourself. Also: maybe I'm just stupid, but the plot was in my opinion really hard to follow and I payed full attention. At some point it just all became too much and also too stupid.
The "thrilling" part of this thriller is to think how something can possibly be so bad. Old formulas with even older dressing, bad acting that chills to the bones, desperate desire to "talk serious" about what contemporary art "really is" - knowing nothing about art or about the art market.
Humor trash exagerado. Eu gosto. Gostei da maneira escrachada que o universo da arte é representado mas acho que algumas mortes poderiam ter se mantido trash mas um pouco mais coerentes, ainda que irreais. Daria pra ter explorado mais! Famoso ruim mas é bom (talvez tenha gostado pq tenho vivido nesse universo e adorei as figuras esteriotipadas rs)
Velvet Buzzsaw is a fun enough horror film that is best when playing its hand at satirizing the fine art world & not taking on the 'ghost' film. The cast, especially Gyllenhaal (who is undoubtedly one of America's finest living actors at this point), all understand the vicious ironic bite needed for Gilroy's evisceration of the excess & absurdity of the cold-blooded fine art world. If only the horror had as much bite
This film is problematic for so many reasons, the foremost being the casting of yet another straight male in a gay role. Although I’m normally a Jake Gylenhall fan, his hackneyed mannerisms and phony speech patterns actually made my skin crawl. And STOP WRITING GAY CHARACTERS THAT FALL IN LOVE WITH WOMEN!!! It is incredibly offensive to see big budget projects that not only can’t commit to hiring gay talent, but...↓
A great sequel to Ghostbusters 2. I also love how everyone who thinks they have some fucking original voice in criticism is shitting on this because it's mocking them and their "artistic sensibilities." The dialogue felt like 90% of the reviews on this site. Just adjectives and verbs shit into existence. We all deserve death by painting. Something something Cahiers du cinéma.
A Tales from the Crypt episode with pretentions to satire, this oddly titled Velvet Buzzsaw begins like a bad parody of Bret Easton Ellis (without the wit or the bite) before eventually turning into a bad Hideo Nakata film with ridiculous horror set-pieces. I wanted more Jake G channeling Nic Cage as his art critic caricature, more haunted-art mystery, less of Z-Ashton's dreadful non-performance & stronger imagery.
What does Velvet Buzzsaw mean? What does some cursed art mean? What purpose do all the characters serve? Don't know, don't care. The bland performances don't help us care about any characters and the ludicrous horror premise of dangerous art gets more ridiculous than it is scary.
