Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

the dialogue is often nonsensical, I was horrified this might be the art world

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

The "Art World" is often a term used to denote the "high end" art market and the "art stars" that function within that market. There is a lot of pretentiousness and ridiculous nonsense to be found there. One need only watch Robert Hughes documentary, The Mona Lisa Curse. But we shouldn't confuse this aspect of the "Art World" with the world of artists and art lovers.

The "art world" has actually gone and poisoned it for the rest of us, because among the lay public, everyone sort of assumes visual art is pretentious and incomprehensible, or requires special knowledge to understand.

John Malkovitch? I'm in.

Don't know what the big deal is though, I often paint horrors.

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

The "art world" is a distant planet

NASA is what people are aware of

Actual art is a UFO

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

I don't see what's so pretentious about it. The last time I had Babs over for hors d'ouvres in my Tribeca penthouse, she had the nerve to say that the area was once a disreputable part of town called the Bowery. Woody was so miffed that he tossed his pâtes aux truffes all over her Prada, and it looked just like one of those paintings in the trailer. It's now on exhibit at the Met.

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

Art scene caricatures walk into old school horror flick.
No thanks.

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

Movie review.....

snip


Matt: It certainly left me cold. Not so much for lack of originality, though. The concept is there; it’s the execution that’s lacking. Mostly, I just wanted the satire to be more clever and the thrills to be more thrilling. But I admire how ridiculous the movie can be, and there are far, far, far worse Netflix originals that you can waste your time on. Plus, Gyllenhaal is doing the sort of rarefied bizzaro work that demands our attention ― a rare male movie star after my own heart. And honestly, you’ve upped my appreciation for “Buzzsaw” and all its cheesy oddities. So thanks for that, P! What’s your final verdict?

Priscilla: I love this movie, but I also love indulging my bad taste. I already feel guilty having asked so many people to watch it for the purpose of contributing to this story, so while I won’t say you should watch it, I will say I’m glad I did. (Twice.)

I can't wait to see it.

Re: Velvet Buzzsaw

Looks like a fancy reworking of Art School Confidential. Better production values, I'm sure.
