These paintings have souls and are ready to kill. Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the 1st trailer for horror-thriller 'Velvet Buzzsaw'.

 

Netflix movie ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ looks like the overwrought, bloody, absurd guilty pleasure of the year

You won’t be able to look away from Jake Gyllenhaal’s new Netflix movie about painting that – yes! – come to life and murder people

Much like you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, you probably shouldn’t judge a film by its trailer. But Velvet Buzzsaw, the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Netflix movie, is so completely absurd, it’s hard not to immediately leap to conclusions about the whole thing.

The movie’s premise is this: Zawe Ashton’s Josephina discovers a series of haunting paintings by a recently deceased and unknown artist, and takes them to the ridiculously named art dealer Morf Vanderwalt (Gyllenhaal) to sell on. The pair begin raking in the cash (“Demand has people ready to kill,” claims Toni Collette’s gallery owner Gretchen) but things take a terrifying and bizarre turn when the paintings begin to not only come to life but attack people.

Cue some fantastically absurd scenes in which one man seems to spontaneously be engulfed by flames while he’s driving his truck. When he tries to clean himself up at a sink beneath one of the paintings, the chimps within the frame reach out and try to strangle him. In another clip, the colours flood out of a piece of art hung in a gallery, along the floor, and all over Josephina’s entire body. Her reaction is to scream her lungs out but, to be quite honest, it seems like she’s getting off lightly compared to the other guy. Better to look like a bit of multi-coloured marble than suffer asphyxiation at the hands of acrylic monkeys.

The trailer is filled with this kind of overwrought acting, not least when it comes to Gyllenhaal’s scenes. When he tries to explain what’s going on with the seemingly possessed paintings, his eyes look like they’re about to pop out of his skull and he yells: “Something truly goddamn strange is going on!” You don’t say, Jake. There’s also a truly great bit when a robot that appeared at an art fair at the start of the trailer suddenly reappears as Gyllenhaal tries to lock the artwork away. It blocks the art dealer’s path with a crutch and creepily croaks, “I can save you”.

Velvet Buzzsaw isn’t just some absurd, twisted horror movie, though. It seems as though writer and director Dan Gilroy (NightcrawlerRoman J. Israel, Esq.) wants it to make some big points about both the art world and society. The paintings seem only to attack the wealthy or corrupt because they hold “a disgust for the world of money.” There’s also an unbelievable scene where Gretchen is murdered in the gallery overnight and discovered by visitors the next day who think she’s part of an exhibit. “We’re trending on Instagram,” Josephina quavers. “It’s a major hit.” But even with the world’s addiction to ‘like’-grabbing content and viral fame, the idea that not one person – including the gallery’s staff – would think to check the pools of blood and lifeless body weren’t real seems more than a little extreme.

Netflix: Immerse yourself in the insane trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw

I saw, the ambitious new Netflix horror film from Nightcrawler writer/director Dan Gilroy, just released its first trailer, and you’re going to want to immerse yourself in this strangeness immediately.

Like NightcrawlerVelvet Buzzsaw features Jake Gyllenhaal in the eccentric lead role. This time playing an art critic who finds himself in the midst of a nightmarish supernatural mystery when a dead artist’s paintings begin coming to life and slaughtering people who allow their greed to get in the way of art.

There’s an undeniable bizarre quality to the film, from the foreign feel of the art world, to the absurdity of paintings — one of which is a group of monkeys — coming to life. Despite a premise that could be downright silly in the hands of a less capable filmmaker, Velvet Buzzsaw still manages to evoke a significant amount of fear with its trailer.

In addition to Gyllenhaal, Gilroy’s film boasts an equally impressive and jaw-dropping cast of supporting players. Zawe Ashton (Not Safe for Work), Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), John Malkovich (Who can now be seen in Bird Box, another Netflix horror film), Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting), Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things), and fresh off of her astonishing performance in Hereditary, Toni Collette, each make an appearance in the film.

In the last pairing between Dan Gilroy and Jake Gyllenhaal, the actor delivered what has perhaps been the greatest performance of his consistently acclaimed career, playing a sociopathic photojournalist who manipulates crimes scenes to his benefit before recording them and shopping them around to news outlets.

Disappearing entirely into his twisted Nightcrawler character is a high point that should have earned him an Academy Awards nomination (it’s been four years, but we’re still mad about it), and judging by his commitment to character in the new trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw, Gilroy will be gifting us with another brilliant performance from the actor.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "Top40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SVK  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?). The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.  Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SVK.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later. Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created. Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 800,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 400,000 people we could pay them $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 400,000 people a lot well yes it would be more employees than almost any other company in the world and more than half the population of the entire city of Louisville, Ky.

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something. The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content. Further I promise to you and all who read this if I do prevail in my lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. I will use half of any monies I may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, I will use half of any monies I may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. I will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, I want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. oh yeah and those funny old men running for president vote on one of them too or not. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. Thank you ttyl
