After a series of 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.
Velvet Buzzsaw. Is it worth it?
Well, to be honest, it’s not that scary, it’s not that funny. It’s not a genuine thriller. It’s neither mysterious in terms of the plot. It’s not complicated or complex or overly intellectual. It’s superficial, but sometimes it kind of shows us more.
It tries to be all these things all at once, and it kind of fails at them all.
But you want to know something genuinely funny?
It’s still worth watching.
Jake Gyllenhaal is phenomenal. He’s simply amazing, and he delivers some brilliant one-liners. But, at the same time, the rest of the cast deliver sub-par performances.
This strange mix of Final Destination, Scooby-Doo(it’s got this vibe going on), and any of the well-known horror flicks, Velvet Buzzsaw is worth watching even though the odds are it’s going to disappoint you.
Well, that’s Velvet Buzzsaw for you.
Disappointing, but worth your time, if only for about ten to fifteen minutes of Jake Gyllenhaal being fantastic.
