    I feel like I’ve known this movie for years.

    New Episode of Cineflek has dropped!!

    Uncut Gems is a spectacular rewatch. During the initial viewing I was shocked I was seeing Adam Sandler, however after this viewing I was fully immersed in Howard. His performance is transformative and bears no resemblance to Adam Sandler as a pop culture symbol.

    Even 3 years later, this movie has reverberated through the film world. It's aesthetic and especially pacing have become so commonplace in indie movies, I can't help but compare elements…
