“This is me! This is how *I* win.”
Uncut Gems is probably the most intense film I’ve seen all year. This film doses not let go of you ever this is an adrenaline rush and holy crap. Adam Sandler gives the best performance I’ve seen so far this year, he is outstanding here this dude brings this character of Howard to life and he is so engaging in every moment Sandler just nails this role so perfectly. Kevin Garnett and LaKeith Stanfield are also very good in this along with everyone else this film has such a great cast. This is so fucking intense like good god almighty every moment I felt I was on edge even in small moments I just felt like something was gonna go down and dear lord when shit hits the fan it hits that fan so hard it shatters into pieces cause that’s how intense this movie gets especially it’s final act. Never has my blood pumped so much in one final act in so long like I was fucking sweating bullets and my god does that ending stick with you like I was legit speechless. The Safdie Brothers do such a phenomenal job directing and writing (along with Ronald Bronstein in the writing department) this film like it just feels so raw and gritty they just bring into the madness of this world so perfectly and they up themselves big time here. Overall Uncut Gems was everything I hoped it would be and more I absolutely love this movie so much it’s a perfect non stop trill ride and I loved every minute of it.
