    ★★★★★

    Well, I think I found the best film of 2019. It’s hard to write down my thoughts about this and it all make sense, but forgive me. 


     Fear & anxiety of the unknown and of ourselves. A lost in translation of lust and love. The crippling of an enslaved system followed by a riposte of anger, confusion, and brutality.

    ★½

    Velvet Buzzsaw is like a Black Mirror episode that looks like a CW film that premieres on the SYFY channel.. it’s simply not good. A heavy handed message, terrible dialogue, and just intentionally funny-bad scenes. I’m not exactly disappointed, because I expected as much.
