The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Velvet Buzzsaw is a thriller set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.
I’ve been looking forward to seeing some footage for this for quite some time since I absolutely loved Gilroy and Gyllenhaal’s last collaboration, which was Nightcralwer, and I’m surprised to see that it looks like Velvet Buzzsaw is a straight up horror film. I’m also impressed with the ensemble listed here and can’t wait for it to drop on Netflix.
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Zawe Ashton, Rene Russo, Tom Sturridge, John Malkovich, Billy Magnussen, Natalia Dyer, Toni Collette and Daveed Diggs.
Velvet Buzzsaw will premiere at Sundance Film Festival before being available on the streaming service from the 1st February 2019.
