Uncut Gems (Josh & Benny Safdie, 2019) wr. Josh & Benny Safdie, Ronald Bronstein; Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian
This is an unenlightening story about greed, crime, gambling, basketball—and jewellery. If you allow yourself to engage with the story—and it puts up a lot of barriers, notably the overlaying of simultaneous dialogue—it is rewarding, mostly because of its sheer energy, and partly because there is actually a (crazily) inspirational element at its heart.
