Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems ★★★★½

So you’re fucking telling me that editing can be this smooth and pace can be that perfect?
This blew me away. I didn’t know what to expect because I really didn’t highly rate Good Time but this has masterpiece qualities. Cathartic in the how reality felt so naturally captured and possessive of a flow so succinct that I felt physically drained and stressed from watching this. Yeh Safdie Brothers based this film of their Dad who was actually a diamond salesman and I think that’s how they managed to encapsulate the brutality and realism. The use of colours was majorly effective and the surreal visuals that occur cyclically are the beginning of the end were beautiful and perfectly fit to the film.
This is an groundbreaking piece of work for Adam Sandler as well who captured this character perfectly: intricate and true like all the best character portrayals out there. A total and epic feature.
