An anxiety inducing tornado that sweeps you and squirms your brain. [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2020
Operates entirely at a level of clammy panic and desperation, forcing its audience to witness a person make all the wrong decisions and being powerless to stop it.
June 27, 2020
Uncut Gems is a near masterpiece of filmmaking, both in story and style.
June 26, 2020
Manic and pulse-pounding, with a blistering energy, this is one hell of a ride.
June 22, 2020
Uncut Gems is driven by a solid performance by Adam Sandler in an enthralling story of gambling addiction. Above anything else, you're watching this to see Adam Sandler shine, and the chaotic drama will only keep you tuned in until the very end.

Dizzying in its overlapping talk-talk-talk, incessant ambient din and translucent set design (glass is everywhere), the movie seems to radiate energy, heat, light and pressure -- it crushes scenes into diamonds.
June 12, 2020
It's intense filmmaking that starts slow and messy and accelerates to a mesmerising climax.
May 1, 2020
What is there to say? Adam Sandler gives the performance of his career in a sea of diamond-encrusted Furbies.

We are rocketed through Ratner's world - a place of permanently raised voices, propulsive camera work and blaring noise - accompanied by a pulsing score from Daniel Lopatin...

The Safdie brothers - whose last film, Good Time, redefined Robert Pattinson for a lot of moviegoers - are prepared to show you a new side of Adam Sandler.
March 29, 2020
Adam Sandler, who also did an impressive non-comedy turn in Punch-Drunk Love (2002), puts in a very strong performance as a hard-bitten businessman determined to survive in a world set out to destroy him.

Filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie bought a quality product to audiences this past year and Sandler shines and the wholly unlikeable Ratner, but the film has flaws.
February 28, 2020
The thing that elevates it above all else is the frenetic energy that infuses every scene, yet calibrated so perfectly so that it stays, barely, on the right side of frustrating. There's nothing more thrilling than that.

Uncut Gems isn't exactly an enjoyable experience - it's stressful and hectic and anxiety-provoking. But, that doesn't take away from the fact that the Safdies have created a drama that is downright fascinating.
February 16, 2020
Sandler is Oscar-worthy in raw 'Uncut Gems.'
February 13, 2020
The Safdies have not conferred mystical powers onto their film, but like the black opal at its heart, UNCUT GEMS will transfix the viewer by reflecting something a little different back at you depending on what angle you consider it from.
February 13, 2020
The Safdies create dazzling, anxiety-inducing mania that spares no moment for viewers to catch their breath... 10/10 recommend.
February 12, 2020
It's a brilliantly exhausting movie that gaffer-tapes us to motormouth New York gem dealer and degenerate gambler Howard Ratner... The thrill and despair of the addict are palpable.
February 10, 2020
Uncut Gems maintains its social critique and shows us the dirty games played in a society led by capitalism and greed. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 8, 2020
Impressive but somewhat exhausting at 135 minutes, this still has a great deal to admire, from the pitch of nervous tension, to the entire supporting cast.
