Reviews: Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Velvet Buzzsaw has trouble balancing its satirical and horror elements, which results in an interesting, but unsatisfying Netflix original.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: I don’t think it entirely works as a cohesive whole, but it’s filled with striking imagery, unexpected choices, and big swing performances.
  • Candice Frederick @ Harper’s Bazaar
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: It’s a wickedly delicious, satirical take-down that’s about as deep as a puddle, but a wonderfully wild ride nonetheless.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Any creative medium which takes itself too seriously is ripe for satire, but considering the money involved, the contemporary art world is riper than most. It’s about time the artwork gets a say in the matter – and it is not happy.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: If one can get on its straight-up mean wavelength, “Velvet Buzzsaw” plays like a wickedly unpredictable nightmare yarn that would have the Crypt Keeper cackling with glee.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: It’s this unfortunate reality that Velvet Buzzsaw can never escape: its pedestrian genre mechanics.
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Although not a perfect film, VELVET BUZZSAW offers subtle humor along with exciting thrills and chills, especially when paintings start coming to life.
