"Critique is so limiting and emotionally draining", says a pondering, heavily affected Jake Gyllenhaal, wearing thick glasses and an all black suit in that very specific, snooty art scene man uniform.

After premiering at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on January 27th 2019, Velvet Buzzsaw will be showing on the Netflix streaming service in a few weeks time on February 1st, 2019.

Morf Vandewalt is not the most ethical of critics; he'd rather artists maintain vices such as alcohol dependency if it means good art, and he spares no-one's feelings in his lack of interest in the work of an up-and-coming modern sculptor. These particular pieces seemingly have the ability to come to life and hurt or even kill those who come in contact with them. The trailer shows flashes of beings coming out of the paintings and attack those who look at it. It's all havoc from there as the art seems to bring terror and catastrophe.

"There is some sort of power, some spirit, it's connected to his art", Vanderwalt says.

Though we prefer Gyllenhaal's description in the trailer: "Something truly goddamn odd is going on!"

Check out some of the reactions below.

Let me get something out of the way: I think Nightcrawler is one of the best movies of the decade.

- Cool Guy Paul (@peachpitgf)I cherish Nightcrawler, @DaveedDiggs, and weird shit. Gyllenhaal also worked with Ashton on Nocturnal Animals, coincidentally another film about the art world.
