Uncut Gems ★★★½

A well-crafted thriller, but tests the limits of how uncomfortable it can make its audience in rooting for its main character. I was tense and nervous almost the whole time; the movie left me with an icky feeling at the poor human choices depicted. I can admire the craft, and it was certainly thrilling.

Call out to the soundtrack here: adds great tone and tension to the movie; modern with 80s influences that I loved.
