Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems ★★★★★

"That's history right there!"

Everybody loves a winner. Replays like a finely tuned machine, and what it may lose in tension for round 2 (which is little to none), it more than makes up for in the sheer joy of watching the construction in action. Operates on a very different level than Good Time did, something simultaneously more abstract and clinical and more visceral and textured- some sort of cosmo-mystic street crime opus both heavily indebted to past reference points and something wholly fresh. Special stuff.
