Velvet Buzzsaw – Dan Gilroy (2019)

I had no high expectations, but for some reason I wanted to watch this film. I think it is better than the 5.7 rating at IMDb.

We get a peek into the modern art scene in which buyers, sellers, artists and critics work together for maximum profit. A snakepit in which people have to compete and cooperate.

Everybody is always on the hunt for the next hot artist, but things have been low for a while. Then the dark art of an unknown artist is discovered and a bubble starts to be built.

As the art or its artist is even darker than imagined, the film has some thriller and even horror elements. These do not dominate the film.

As said, the film is not all that bad to me. The story is alright and at least something different. The end is quite weak though.
