Uncut Gems ★★★★

Reviewed on Cinema Eclectica.

Previously I'd been happy to call myself a fan of the Safdies - but there seems to be something stopping me from adoring this hugely proficient film in the way everyone else has, and I'm not entirely sure what it is. No arguing against its obvious virtues, though - its sense of place, its spiralling tension, its remarkably good work from a mix of newcomers and established names cast wildly against type.
