Netflix’s Velvet Buzzsaw ending explained will probably leave you with a few more questions - like what’s up with all the cats in Velvet Buzzsaw? Well, we have no idea, so let’s just skip that part, but for the rest of the movie, we think we’ve got it covered. At the least, you have to admit that it’s the best artworld satire horror mashup of all time. The Jake Gyllenhaal Netflix movie certainly straddles a line between horror and dark comedy. Is Velvet Buzzsaw a dark comedy? Kinda… Is Velvet Buzzsaw a horror movie? Eh… kinda. At its heart, Velvet Buzzsaw is a satire, and a deep satire of art and the artworld in general. Here’s the most important takeaway from Velvet Buzzsaw: The artworld is phoney and all the prices are overblown. If you accept that, then the rest of the film makes sense. The robot Hoboman represents this in a nutshell. Gyllenhaal’s Morf Vandewalt pans the work early in the film, and in turn ruins the life of the artist - despite everyone else liking the work. It’s the power of the critic that is the main critique of Velvet Buzzsaw - and that’s why the deus ex machina is the art - sweeping at the last second to play the role of the bad guy. The art coming to life isn’t the only bad guy: when you think about it, Morf Vandewalt, Rhodora Haze, Jon Dondon, and Vetril Dease are all bad guys. That’s the point - everyone in Velvet Buzzsaw is a bad guy. In the end, the art, as art, wins. #VelvetBuzzsaw #EndingExplained Final exhibition | 0:19 Killer comedy | 1:19 Death of the artist | 2:15 Morf's role | 3:08 Dease: Nuts | 4:43 People start dying | 5:30 The velvet buzzsaw | 7:00 Art for art's sake | 8:29 Soul survivors | 10:00
