    Velvet Buzzsaw

    ★★★★½

    To be perfectly frank, I have no idea what the majority of you were watching. The movie I saw was splendid, compelling, and perfectly satirical.

    It is gorgeous and has excellent music…

    But please, feel free to give it five stars and talk about how amazing it was. You fucking idiots.
