Velvet Buzzsaw is an American supernatural horror film written and Directed by Dan Gilroy and staring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things), Daveed Diggs, Billy Maggnussen and John Malkovich.
At first glance you wouldn’t be able to tell that this was a horror film. It’s coated in the rich glam strange art life. Everyone is snooty and pretending to be too good for each other.
The story line was confusing from start to finish making it a easy movie to get distracted from if your not giving it your full attention. Most of the plot twists were easily missed during the entire film.
Although this movie is categorized as a horror film it was everything but that. There were some creepy and gory moments however nothing completely disturbing.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Toni Collette’s performance was excellent as to be expected, giving the viewers a real powerhouse experience.
The direction was exceptional but the movie felt like it should have been a limited mini series instead of a 2 hour film.
You probably won’t watch it again unless your attempting to dissect every scene and do a true breakdown on what’s happening in the film.
Because of the movies short comings were giving this movie a 2/5.
