Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems ★★★★½

Near the end of the film I managed to peel my eyes away from the screen for long enough to see a guy in my row with his head in his hands, visibly rattled by the chain of maddeningly terrible decisions unfolding on screen, a response I imagine the Safdies will find far more gratifying than the inevitable glut of editorials come awards season about how Sandler was robbed of an Oscar nomination. "Are you having a good time?"
