velvet buzzsaw review

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy made his directorial debut with the sharp, exciting Nightcrawler, featuring Jake Gyllenhaal giving an incredible performance. It was an exciting launch to Gilroy’s directorial career that was sadly followed with the lackluster Roman J. Israel, Esq. Let’s call it a sophomore slump, because Gilroy bounces back in a big, bloody way with the hilarious Velvet Buzzsaw. The horror-comedy has the filmmaker reuniting with Gyllenhaal, but Velvet Buzzsaw is worlds removed from Nightcrawler. While Nightcrawler was going for cerebral thrills, Velvet Buzzsaw is trafficking in gore-soaked comedy…with a much higher body count.

spider-man far from home trailer

It’s been a week full of Marvel Studios mania. The week kicked off with a new trailer for Captain Marvel and it wrapped up with the mysterious teaser for Avengers: Endgame. However, let’s not forget that there are three movies coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year, and the first trailer for the third and final one has been released.

velvet buzzsaw trailer

Five years ago we saw how truly weird and dark Jake Gyllenhaal could get when he teamed up with writer-director Dan Gilroy for the twisted 2014 thriller Nightcrawler, which gave a thought-provoking condemnation of the ambulance-chasing tabloid industry.

Now, Gyllenhaal, Gilroy, and Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo reunite for what looks to be a darkly satirical indictment of yet another niche field: the contemporary art world. Velvet Buzzsaw is a horror-thriller starring Gyllenhaal as a pretentious art critic who soon becomes targeted by killer art pieces. Yes, you read that right. See the first Velvet Buzzsaw trailer below.

Spider-Man Far From Home

if beale street could talk jake gyllenhaal

On top of being an uber-talented actor and the thinking girl’s heartthrob, Jake Gyllenhaal has now ascended to becoming this fall movie season’s behind-the-scenes hero.

Gyllenhaal made headlines earlier this summer for having a part in getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return as Laurie Strode for the Halloween reboot, which helped make it one of the most anticipated movies of the season. And now he’s revealed to have helped get Barry Jenkins‘ adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk to the big screen — and it happened almost by accident.

the sisters brothers review

Jacques Audiard‘s The Sisters Brothers is an utterly strange, utterly lovely postmodern Western about two outlaw brothers and the two men they’re hunting. Dreamy, surreal and balancing darkness and light in equal measure, it’s a wholly unique, somewhat perplexing experience. 

Find out more in our The Sisters Brothers review below.

Wildlife Trailer

With the Toronto International Film Festival in full swing, we’re starting to get a better glimpse of some of the movies playing the festival. Several of them have already made the rounds on the festival circuit as far back as Sundance in January but are now ramping up their marketing campaign as awards season lingers around the corner. That’s where Paul Dano‘s directorial debut comes into play.

Wildlife is an adaptation of Richard Ford’s acclaimed novel of the same name, and it finds Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan as a couple on the outs in 1960s Montana as a forest fire rages in the mountains not too far away. It’s up to their son Joe (Ed Oxenbould of The Visit) to become the man of the house and try to keep his family together, even as all seems hopeless. Watch the new Wildlife trailer below. Read More »
