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.

Having looked at it closely, I'd say it's being over-valued. But not by much.

When relief finally comes, it's heartbreaking.

Uncut Gems is a fairytale written by the hand of capitalism, where mystical highs are followed by crushing blows -- and there's always a price to pay.

This is the year's most exciting film. You can take that to the bank.

There is more to the Safdies' secret sauce than panic. At first glance the cast has the feel of a group of strangers grabbed at random from the sidewalk, yet it clicks and keeps clicking.

Adam Sandler doing the absolute best work of his career. Really, truly when given the challenge, he more than rises to it.

It's a breathless journey that captures the exhilaration and the hopelessness of living life on the edge. It's a gamble that pays off, and then some.

Cinematographer Darius Khondji gives the film a gritty, twitchy feel. The Safdies give it a story and a pace that never lets up. But Sandler gives it life, and makes "Uncut Gems" a must-see movie.

Adam Sandler does award-worthy work as a jeweler addicted to the gambling rush.

This is the best character Sandler has ever played.

Sandler inhabits this character fully and without vanity, working Howard's ready smile and desperate eyes and needling, never-ending sales pitch into a devastating portrait of a lesser shark, the kind who's always late for the kill.

It all ends up to be a film in which both Sandler and the Safdies are pulling out all the stops, and it works.

Sandler is so good, so committed and so watchable that, despite everything - Howard's irrationality, a rogue's gallery of unpleasant characters, the foreboding of a bad, bad end - you can't take your eyes off the screen, which Sandler seldom vacates.

By the time it's all over, nothing is exactly what you might feel. But Sandler and Fox give it the humanity the Safdies wanted there.
December 14, 2019
The Safdies have a preferred aesthetic and mood and remain true to it throughout. For those who appreciate this sort of modern-day neo noir experience, it gleams as hypnotically as the titular totem.

Uncut Gems is terrifically effective as you're watching it, though its aroma-unlike streetside garbage in the summer-might not linger.

As for Sandler, he deserves the accolades he's getting, again proving that with the right material, he has an uncanny ability to reach deep within us, despite our deep, DEEP annoyance.

"Uncut Gems" insists on keeping audiences on tenterhooks as Howard tries to play the ends against the middle - or just stay one step ahead of his enemies-waiting for his windfall....viewers may be wise to bring a case of Tums to chew on.
