Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems

a title sequence that looks like a toothpaste advert and build-up and these-don't-quite-match-the-tone-on-purpose synths and build-up and Everyone Talking At Once and build-up and wow how long has it been and build-up and not-release and build-up and does this count as a period piece? that's kinda cool and build-up and are they really going to hold this feeling for over two hours and build-up and build-up and build-up and credits.

this was really excellent. mania that never relents, especially not when it looks like it might. formally anxious...like the form of the movie, not like used to...you got it. the jeweller's defence door as a comedy prop is such a natural choice that no-one else seems to have thought of. i didn't like "good time" when i saw it but this has convinced me that i was probably missing something. v happy i saw this on a big screen with cinema speakers - my attention span would have ruined it otherwise.
