Say what you will about “Velvet Buzzsaw” but the opinion will simply be in the eye of the BEHOLDER.
Much like art, whether you dig this flick will all depend on what you’re looking for, and the more I think and dwell on “Buzzsaw” I find a lot in common with modern film criticism. It’s annoying, needy, whiny, overly complicated and needless more often than not. Of course I’m skewering myself as well, but I can take my own joke and realize what kind of hypocrite I am.
Being one of like five people in the whole world that actually likes “Art School Confidential” I liken “Buzzsaw” a fun little companion piece where John Malkovich is somehow playing the same character in both and it’s wonderful.
