Preview, Netflix reunited Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for a horrific spoof of the art biz — “Velvet Buzzsaw”

What’s great, worth going to see and buying? What’s hot in the art world, worth investing in?

Whatever we tell you is, darling.

“Velvet Buzzsaw” is a satiric thriller from Dan Gilroy (“Nightcrawler”) about a new “discovery,” already dead and thus valuable to art dealers and collectors, whose paintings and other works exert a murderous influence over those who come into contact with them.

“We’re trending on Instagram!”

Love Gyllenhaal’s eyesight-challenged taste-setter in this, and yes — he’s re-teamed with Rene Russo, his “Nightcrawler” object of desire, for it.

Toni Collette and John Malkovich also star in the film, in Netflix and select theaters on Feb. 1.
