Consider me intrigued by Dan Gilroy's "Velvet Buzzsaw," by far, my most anticipated film of this year's upcoming Sundance Film Festival. This is quite clearly a return to the societal underground malaise that Gilroy tackled with Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler."
‘Buzzsaw’ is supposed to premiere on Netflix February 1st. This could mean one of two things a) Netflix does not believe it will be remembered come awards consideration next December but still think they have a solid movie here or b) they are trying to just dump it, with absolutely no confidence in it, thus the early year release. I believe it could be the former.
