35 | Dan Gilroy on Velvet Buzzsaw

In this special episode of the podcast, I speak with Dan Gilroy about his latest movie, Velvet Buzzsaw. Set in the contemporary art world of L.A., the film follows 8 characters through the discovery of an outsider artist’s secret body of work, their rise to fame as it’s distributed, and the meteoric fall they all must inevitably face for doing so.

Check out Velvet Buzzsaw on Netflix. If you don’t want spoilers definitely watch it before listening to this episode.
