September 18, 2019
It's difficult to walk [the] line of comedy and horror... It walks the line fairly well.
August 29, 2019
It draws a picture we've seen before.
July 31, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw doesn't become the movie we want it to be until the last 30 minutes. That's when it starts working effectively as an art-world satire and horror-thriller. The rest, though, has a hard time striking a balance between too.

Is director Dan Gilroy trying to catch us in our own shallow consumption? ... Frankly, if this is the case then thank you. I'll take it.
July 17, 2019
Is it Gilroy coming to grips with career length anxieties about creating and analyzing fiction? It's hard to say and even harder to care.
July 3, 2019
This is a psychedelic horror movie that takes inspiration from the works of Henry Darger and turns it into a gory and bitingly satirical examination of art itself.
June 27, 2019
Feels exhausting before the body count even begins.
June 14, 2019
A stylish and entertaining horror enlivened by fun performances, superb production design work and confident direction.
May 29, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw may not be a film we're still talking about in a year, but as a biting commentary on art, criticism and egos run amuck, it's equally stinging and entertaining.
May 19, 2019
An entertaining ride with engaging performances that is held back by its indecisive tone.
May 10, 2019
It's this unfortunate reality that Velvet Buzzsaw can never escape: its pedestrian genre mechanics.
April 16, 2019
Netflix's art snob horror-comedy isn't a pretty picture.
April 15, 2019
This movie is so preposterous, so profoundly weird, just hilarious and merciless and black-hearted from beginning to end.
April 8, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw just tries so hard. It wants to be artsy and on point. Unfortunately, it's all sizzle and no steak, a literal snooze-fest.
April 8, 2019
The horror feels stitched into Velvet Buzzsaw. Plucked and borrowed from films that came before it, twirled in wet paint, and utilized without concrete rhyme or reason.
April 4, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw's lost its buzz. How meta, how post-modern, how revolutionary!
March 30, 2019
Though not as electric as his previous work, Gilroy crafts a film that makes for a fascinating watch at home on Netflix, especially with how it examines the life of an artist.
March 20, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw is an ambitious thriller that completely fails to become a horror movie or to do more than a shallow critic to the art world. [Full review in Spanish]
March 5, 2019
Despite its flaws though, props to Gilroy for his creativity and taking us to a world rarely depicted on screen. Heck, the character names alone is ingenious... Morf Vandewalt, Vetril Dease could be such fun band names!
March 2, 2019
La postura crítica de Gilroy es lo que hace que Velvet Buzzsaw tenga fondo y forma, pero son las actuaciones las que logran recrear la desagradable naturaleza capitalista del arte.
