Uncut Gems

An endorphin-inducing deep dive into the self-destructive psyche of a compulsive gambler, Uncut Gems is one of the year’s most extraordinary films. Gripping from start to finish, and showcasing a dedicated, career-best performance from Adam Sandler, the film expertly navigates the central character’s complex lifestyle as he spirals out of control at an ever increasing rate of acceleration. Once again shooting in their native New York, the Safdie Brothers (Good Time) have fashioned a film imbued with the city’s relentless energy along with its seductive, illicit charms.
