    Below are my thoughts of each death and why they died the way they did. I'm reading too much into it, but fuck it, I dont care.
    Bryson: He wasn't really greedy. He was more of a pretender. Someone who kept trying to be something he wasn't. He could have been an artist if he had rejected the greedy world of high profile art deals, and though he wasnt directly involved that world, he supposedly was an artist. He claimed to be an artist, but really he sold out. He supported an industry that didn't respect art. I dont really have much for him since we didnt get to known him that well.
    DonDon: he was Radona's prior employee who didnt respect art or the innocence of it. He choked the life out of it, and its artist by always looking to exploit an artist for sales, which his hanging and literal choking reflects.
    What's her face (the blonde lady who because an art advisor. Dont remember her name): she never really appreciated art I dont think, unlike Radora and Jake Gyllenhaal's character. Something about the expression "giving an arm and a leg". I kind of lost interest in explaining each death now. The movie wasnt that great, but hell, I'm committed to finish.
    British chick: she insulted collective art group guy making some reference to graffiti. Graffiti consumed her and made her part of itself.
    Jake Gyllenhall: he crushed artists with his reviews. A piece of art he panned crushed his neck.
    Radora (spelling?): she was targeted after seeing the Dease art because she thought the art, namely the status of and money from, defined her and the art itself. To her, art was something to own, buy, or sell. It was property. Though she gave up the art in the end out of fear, its indicates her new rejection of "owning" art, of how she sheds her notion of using art for status. However, she forgot the piece of art she still had on her, the tattoo of the "velvet buzzsaw". The tattoo representing her former self was also something she used to define her character. To Radora, art wasn't something to be enjoyed for enjoyment's sake or for the sake of self expression, it was something she exploited as a tool to give herself status and money. It was to be owned. You could also draw the conclusion that she died because she had shed her true artist self for the sake of money and in the end it was the symbol of her former self that killed her. It should also be noted that in the end her last moments mirrored the Dease painting she had in her bedroom minutes earlier. This mirroring is unique as it doesnt occur anywhere else in the film. Dont know what it means. (Please provide your thoughts. Love to compare)
    The people who didnt die after seeing Dease were either artist who were artist because they loved their craft or because they didnt care about the money.
    Look I know I kind of gave up somewhere in there, but you get the picture. Tell me your thoughts.

    This is definitely not what the title says... It’s not even an explanation. It’s more like a superficial walkthrough of the movie. If anyone learned or realized something about the movie through this please tell me. *takes off critique glasses*

    This channel actually sucks. He just gives a long ass review of the whole movie and tosses in some opinions that don’t really mean much. He doesn’t explain anything. I get fooled and watch one of these stupid things once every 6 months. Please let this be the last time

    I think Dan Gilroy must have been stuck on a flight to Europe and watched the contemporary art documentary "The Price of Everything" on the plane like I did. The mirrored sphere could be a take on Jeff Koons' "Gazing Ball" series featured in the doc, just as Russo's character could be based on Amy Cappellazzo, who also made her name in the non-art town of Miami and sold her soul. I wonder if the mystery artist was inspired by Larry Poons?
    PS @13:20 Did Jake Gyllenhaal just turn into Nicolas Cage?

    Got to say I was very disappointed with velvet buzz saw. The trailer was a flat out lie really made it look like you was gonna watch a suspenseful thriller just for it to feel like a cheap tv show. I wasn't afraid once and everything was predictable and this was embarrassing for me since I got a bunch of friends to watch it and everyone just kept saying how this was a waste of time. Fantastic trailer but a terrible predictable film. Having said that I liked Jakes character it was acted well.

    2:44 ah sadly or surprisingly pleasant the art market is a billion dollar industry. Get your art on yall-- capitalisticly speaking as a rule of thumb I keep to Dr. Maya Angelou's saying: "all knowledge is spendable currecy depending on the market, know everything" and so personalizing every business interaction so as to not depend heavyly on moral behavior. If I know my worth I can set the price to what I do ,if I know what others may pay i can adjust to that measure and so on and so forth.

    The paintings seemed to affect artists differently than the people trying to sell the paintings. The artists saw the paintings move and were captivated by the emotion behind the art. The vendors saw nothing until they were killed.

  • Katia The Cake-Loving Cat

    *WARNING VERY LONG* (i took my adhd meds for once)
    I disagree with the last bit about the cats. While Josephina following her cat is what started everything, I feel like the whole thing was more a test, to see if she would realize the fault of her work and change, or remain the same. She didn't change and that is what killed her. The reason Rhodora died after following her cat is because she only got rid of the stuff at her house. I think if she would have made a call then and there to stop everything (stop selling, get others to stop selling) it she would have been safe. But she didn't, and the fact that she just got rid of the paintings in her home shows that she hadn't really changed at all, and she only intended to protect herself, not change her actions.
    The theme I get from this movie is that all the people who died only changed their actions regarding Dease's painting, not their actions and opinions toward all art. They never really changed unlike Damrish, who returned to his underground exihbits or, more symbolically, returned to the true meaning of art.

    Morf also didn't really learn as he, like Rhodora, only tried to stop the selling because of the danger. Even though he did it to protect others, and not just himself, he didn't really change when it came to the core purpose of high-brow art, to make money. His bad reviews not only ruined careers, but probably also stripped the artist of their ability (due to lack of income) or even their motivation to create art. While their biggest sin was and obsession with money, it was also the fact that in their pursuit of it they buried true art, that held meaning and emotion, that was made to inspired and express under pieces made for profit only. I think the reason Dease's painting were so compelling was because he literally put himself into them (I mean his spirit is actually attached to his paintings, and they contain his blood so...) as all art should. My opinion is that all art made with passion and and hard work. Whether the work is physically difficult (requiring skill or just takes a long time) or emotionally difficult (artist has to fight for motivation due to illness/lack of inspiration or just pours their heart and soul into it), the piece takes that emotion and expresses it. It's why those little plaques in museums are so important, or why art someone you know makes can be so much more important that that Picasso.

    The people who died didn't just not see it themselves, they also actively disabled other from seeing it. Hoboman is a piece made to tell a story, but because it is similar to something someone else made, Morf says it's a bad piece. The story and meaning in him is buried and doomed to be forgotten. In their pursuit of money are burying and forcing artists to strip meaning from their work in order to sell and survive, and overall erasing the real purpose of art. The ones who realize this and change survive and are better for it. The ones who don't and continue with their old ways or only change to save themselves but don't actually learn, die. I don't think Dease's spirit is actively working toward this goal, but I think the sheer amount of emotion in his work (his blood, his illness, his abuse) and maybe some frustration from the high-brow world (he clearly didn't show his art, and it could have been due to inability to climb the status ladder) manifested into a new purpose for his work. The paintings became a tool to reshape the art world, and restore the real meaning of art, while at the same time purging of the people who corrupt in for money.

    tl;dr the keep following kitties but be ready to learn from what they show you and remember that while money is important to survive, it should never become more important than other people, how they feel, and how you feel. Keep in touch with your emotions, be aware of others' , and you won't be murdered by haunted art.

    So, I recommended this movie earlier, but I’ll do it again. Please watch “They’re Watching” (2016) found footage film, based in Moldova, and has creepy villagers. I really can’t give more away without spoiling the movie besides it being cleverly written, you actually like the characters, and it’s a movie to not take seriously. I usually am disappointed in most found footage films, but I loved this one for its cleverness. Please please review or just watch it!

      He represented the artist that started his carreer out of passion and that ran out of it by the time we met him in the movie. He was just producing whatever for the paycheck. He then, through seeing Dease's art, remembered what passionately painting was like. You see him drawing on sand at the end of the movie for his sole pleasure, he reconnected with his long gone passion and was producing temporary art for himself. Not for money and recognition.
      He represents what Damrish would have been like in the future if he didnt get out of the "elite art industry" like he did: an uncreative sucked out souless money machine.
