Director: Dan Gilroy
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette
A slasher film set in the art world is the latest Netflix original to grace your home screens. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Morf, an art critic, as he becomes embroiled in a mysterious curse unleashed by the discovery of paintings by an unknown artist. Boasting an impressive cast, including Toni Collette, John Malkovich, and Daveed Diggs, Velvet Buzzsaw is an ensemble horror movie that also functions as a vicious satire of the art world, since the curse only targets those who have let their greed overtake their artistic integrity. Gyllenhaal is delightfully over the top, as is the script, from Nightcrawler screenwriter Dan Gilroy. Velvet Buzzsaw is a ridiculous, gory delight that will leave you asking your more artistic friends what exactly you just watched.
