Velvet Buzzsaw Trailer
In the raging arts scene in Los Angeles, aspiring agent Josephina encounters hundreds of dazzling paintings after an elderly tenant dies in her building. She ignores the instructions left by the unknown artist, his work should be destroyed, and immediately begins to circulate the paintings.
The paintings quickly attract the attention of the heavyweights of the art scene, such as their boss Rhodora Haze, the art critic and Josephina’s lover Morf Vandewalt and a number of collectors and curators such as Bryson and Gretchen. Soon there is a lot of excitement in the art scene, and the artworks of the hitherto unknown painter provide for the highest euphoria. But the enthusiasm has its price, as not only the buyers notice very quickly because a supernatural force seems to punish all those who benefit from the work of the deceased artist. Velvet Buzzsaw
