    This might be Adam Sandler’s best movie yet. It’s a character study of a person who has lost everything in his life. The casting is perfect, Adam Sandler is so likable that you will find yourself rooting for him knowing that he is a gone case. The narrative is so perfect that i find myself ignoring his arrogance, foolishness and insecurity, i just wanted him to win… and that’s something..

    In a world full of CGI blockbusters and comic-book superheroes, here’s a story that’ll bring you back to earth. No alien invasions, no capes, no shiny lasers, only one shinning actor and that is Adam Sandler. I am in awe of his performance, I don’t understand what he wants from me; to become a jew or a jeweler? In any case, This movie’s going down in the history books as one of the most intense rides you’ll ever have on the big screen all without the help of a green-screen.10/10 can’t wait to own it on BluRay.

    Adam Sandler is a blessing in a very, very good disguise. We know him for his lower-than-low-brow comedy movies and super funny lisping, forgetting that a gifted dramatic actor hides behind the clown face (don’t be fooled by the fact that his latest film starts with a colonoscopy, which at first glance feels very Sandler indeed).He was given a chance at reinventing himself as an “actor for grown-ups” with Punch-Drunk Love, I suppose, but that was still a take on his familiar idiot-character (albeit a much better, more sympathetic, and more three-dimensional take) and he still found his way back to Happy Madison potty humor. After the Safdie brothers’ Uncut Gems, however, he might just get to play with the big boys full-time and even score his first Oscar.This is the latest stress-inducing and highly immersive crime thriller from the fellas behind Good Time (one of my favorite films of 2017, although a retroactive addition to my 2017 listicle). Just as Good Time proved that R-Patz can act superbly, although his performance in Twilight insisted on quite the contrary, the Safdie brothers want us to reconsider Sandler next.The year is 2012. Howard Ratner (Sandler) is a Jewish Diamond District jeweler struggling to pay off gambling debts to his loan shark brother-in-law (Eric Bogosian), and his addiction worsens the situation at several points in the film. There are many twists, turns, and gruesome backfirings that never make the 2 and a half-hour film feel boring even once. Howard’s decisions are at points irrational, but it works within the story as his incessant addiction problems are so believable – and, dare I say, relevant.Much of the story revolves around an Ethiopian gemstone that Howard lends to NBA player Kevin Garnett, played by himself, but we’re also made to understand Howard’s domestic situation. He is not yet fully divorced from his wife (Idina Menzel) but nonetheless dates a much younger woman (Julia Fox), which he’s about as transparent with as his shady history with the brother-in-law. The latter woman also knows The Weeknd, played also by himself, who she thinks is gonna be really big one day.But back to Howard, who is scarcely the year’s most loveable character. Mind you, this isn’t a flaw of the film, which never expects us to love him anyway, when it succeeds at something more crucial: creating a wholly believable human being and making us forget that he is a performer reading scripted lines. Every location in the film feels similarly real, with endlessly chattering side characters who never come off as obvious extras or supporting actors. Still, we know who the real star is here.This may be Adam Sandler’s all-time finest performance and he perfectly communicates the anxiety and chaos of the Safdie brothers’ crime-thriller style. Adding to that distinct “Safdie brothers” personality is a constant “closeness” to the messy world we’ve entered (thanks to the often intimate photography), an avant-garde electronic score by Oneohtrix Point Never, and kaleidoscopic visuals made all the more gleaming from being shot on 33-millimeter film. The prismatic colors may be thematically appropriate; think of how light refracts through a gemstone. Even the clothes and set designers are being immaculate with the color schemes here.Finally, much like Good Time, this is one of the most thoroughly unpredictable and original additions to the yearly catalog. The Safdies seem experts at having things go from bad to worse in stressful but riveting ways. I already want to see their next film! Let’s see which other actors they’ll rescue from being eternally lumped in with the shlockbusters. If one can go from Little Nicky to this, much is possible.

    There is no cohesion in the story. I felt like I was just watching a junkie go from one fix to another ending with an obvious twist. The unredeemable character gets what is coming to him for being a scumbag. In fact, every character in this movie is a scumbag. There is not one good person in this movie. It is just an unfunny and chaotic experience and you can see what happens to him a mile away.They tried to be a funny, NYC, diamond dealers gangsta comedy but what it was, was a hot mess of a movie that had not cohesive plot just a day in the life of a scumbag who got what was coming to him.

    Honestly don’t know how this is getting good reviews. Painful, not funny and just overall bad. Watch this if you want a film full of stereotypes and Adam Sandler shouting over an opal. Only slightly redeeming factor was the ending, however can’t even enjoy that due to the pure shambles of a film.

    Do you ever wonder who is writing the rave reviews? People that work for the production companies, I am guessing. I had an early preview and saw it all in 5 minutes fast forwarded. That´s how much I enjoyed it.

    Adam Sandler finally gets to play a role different than the usual goody two shoes characters we’ve come to expect and some critics have already declared this is his “breakout” role. Sandler is Howard Ratner, basically a caricature of Jewish entrepreneur who runs a jewelry showroom in the Diamond District in New York City. The Safdie brothers (Joshua and Benjamin) are responsible for both the direction and the screenplay. Uncut Gems plays out much like an early Scorsese film; and guess what? Scorsese is one of the producers. It’s marked by its frenetic style, with the characters’ dialogue overlapping one another, and Sandler’s manic performance. It’s supposed to be “realistic” but has an improvised quality that distracts from the overall verisimilitude. Sandler as Ratner is cast as not only a businessman, but a compulsive gambler. I say he’s a caricature because even some of the worst compulsive gamblers appear to express some fear of people to whom they owe money -in this case, Ratner does not. Even with a gun to his head or scenes in which the threat of imminent harm is clear, Ratner, in his hyper-narcissism, doesn’t seem to care. He pushes back against everyone who seeks to do him in. The Safdies will probably argue, “that’s the point.” They’ve exaggerated their protagonist’s character in order to highlight his cluelessness. In some respects, Ratner’s outrageousness is supposed to be satirical-his behavior is so over the top that it represents what compulsive gambling is all about in high relief. It exposes Ratner’s love of money as one might term an “emptiness to the core.” Yes we get what the Safdies are trying to say here very early on-and then their Ratner character doubles, triples, quadruples down on it, ad infinitum. I suppose that one ends up asking is, how far will this ridiculous caricature of a character go? So if we strip away the padding (including all the unclear machinations of the loan sharks who are after Ratner from the start), we’re left with a plot that is only mildly interesting. Indeed the plot concerns some black opal gems (encased in one rock) that Ratner illegally imports from Ethiopia and expects to make a killing of over a million dollars at auction. But before he puts it up for auction, he figures out how to make some additional cash from the stone. When famed NBA superstar Kevin Garnett (well played by himself) walks into Ratner’s showroom, he’s so enamored with the piece, that he offers to buy it on the spot. Ratner says he’ll have to wait for the auction but Garnett wants to walk around with it (why I’m not sure), and then agrees to give Ratner one of his championship rings as collateral and return the next day. Ratner promptly pawns the ring and uses the cash to bet on the number of shots Garnett makes in a game that night. Although Ratner wins the bet and makes a great deal of money, we later find out that the bet was canceled by the loan sharks who feared Ratner would lose the bet (which he’s done many times in the past) and not able to pony up the cash to cover his debts. There are some sub-plots here involving Ratner’s wife Dinah (played by Broadway superstar Idina Menzell) as well as his mistress, Julia (Julia Fox), who works in the showroom. The female actors here have little to do until the end, when Julia is entrusted with making Ratner’s last bet at the Mohegan Sun casino. The other twist is that much to Ratner’s chagrin, the opal is undervalued by an appraiser at the auction house and he’s forced to ask an associate to bid up the price against Garnett, who eventually declines to make the purchase, and leaves the associate holding the bag. Ratner is seemingly saved when another one of his large basketball bets comes through (placed by Julia at the casino), only to have one of the loan sharks end up murdering the debt-ridden jewelry owner, after he and his confederates are temporarily locked in by Ratner, inside the vestibule at the showroom. After all the aforementioned frenetic machinations, the Safdies leave us with a cautionary conclusion: compulsive gambling is not a good thing! Their final shot focuses on the blood pouring out of the now deceased Ratner’s eye-and the camera then travels deep into the darkness of that eye-only to find those opals floating in the darkness. Indeed Ratner’s fatal quest is clearly classified as useless and meaningless. If you can ignore the rather obvious premise and the fact that the Safdies have crafted a rather one-note character for Mr. Sandler, Uncut Gems still is occasionally entertaining, with enough twists and turns in the plot, to prevent the discerning viewer from dismissing this effort outright.

    Too much going on in every scene. The whole film felt like a mad panic to squeeze everything into as little time as possible. No time to take everything in.. a case of quantity but little quality..I hated it … one huge mess from start to finish.

    If you have sensitive ears, the music score of this strange film will disturb you to the point of switching channels. I stuck with it but almost stopped watching several times due to the ridiculous, loud, ill-suited music. Whoever composed or designed the music cannot possibly be a professional. Amateur friend of the Director? If you close your eyes while watching you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re watching some low budget version of ‘Blade Runner’, perhaps made on the Cayman Islands.As for the plot and script? Frankly, stupid.

    How is this even a movie? For starters, who’s idea was it to have a constant loud, atrocious, out-of-place and annoying score in almost every second of this film. Then putting a bunch of loud people in one room yelling, ignoring each other and talking nonsense, and call it a movie. This is the garbage daily workplace stress people want to avoid, not watch expecting to be entertained, but instead resort to drinking to settle down watching this stressful convoluted mess of nothingness. What was even the point of the traditional dinner with still non-stop annoying loudness and useless chatter? I get the writers are novice/newbs, but at least have a seasoned writer proofread this mess before it goes to action and viewers watch stunned for 135 mins wondering what they’re watching, only to get a stupid ending. 4/10 all going to Sandlers great performance

    I managed to watch Uncut Gems at New York Film Festival and I can say that it’s one of, if not his best performance to date. For certain parts of the film, I forget that I was watching Adam Sandler cause you know, you are just used to see him in so many comedies but given the right material, he’s actually full of potential in serious and dramatic roles like this. He completely disappears into the role. Adam Sandler is at his best when he’s just acting in a movie and has no actual significant creative input over the movie’s direction. Thank God to the directors, Safdi Brothers.

    The Safdie brothers are a masterful dark comedy creating a film that happily has one rooting for the bad guy. Ratner is in more ways than one despicable cheat; but he’s also someone who can’t assist but love the crowd. As his different systems become more complicated, Ratner’s hole digs deeper and deeper.With the ideal combination of arrogance and nervous insecurity, Sandler portrays Ratner’s reckless descent. He’s the man who believes he’s covered with all the corners ; but he’s really hanging on by a lucky thread.The performance of Sandler fits completely into the natural and edgy filmmaking style of the Safdie brother. The siblings patiently build a narrative that is an unpleasant and riveting experience. The more turbulent the waters Ratner is swimming in, the more difficult it is for one to look away. In fact, Uncut Gems is a rare treasure, a thrilling and darkly funny film.

    I found this film celebrated all that is ugly and brutal and cold. While being well made I found it all on one level. No light and dark just a long tunnel or ugliness about people being nasty loud and by half way through I turned off. I’ve only ever done that once before with a film, I have too much respect for film makers but sorry guys uncut gems just made me feel sick and had no redeeming feature

    Some Jewish (the fact that he is Jewish is told over and over because it’s relevant for some reason) jeweler gets a opal and loses an opal and makes some bet. There’s a lot of African American people for some reason and some bad guys that look Italian American or Russian American stereotypes. All this race thing is not by chance but deliberate again for some reason. Everybody shouts and acts like the Horst human kind has to offer for some reason, repeat for 2 hours. The end.

    Adam Sandler FINALLY shows us that he can act in this performance. Unlike all the other “funny guy” characters he has portrayed in the past he gives a believable non slapstick performance that had me care for his character… for once. This is the performance I always knew he could do and I am glad he achieved it.BUT the film is less than stellar. Truthfully as a film it lacks direction, weak script, weak drive and really doesn’t do anything to hook you in.I found myself yawning a couple of times etc.Regardless thank you Adam and good for you!

    Could only take 10 mins of this . Although I love Sandler his voice in this is so forced its torture. Its a shout fest from all the actors in an effort to be heard over the god awful soundtrack……… Not for me.

    Sandlers voice is like nails scraping a blackboard. His character worse than any addict I’ve ever seen or heard of.The whole thing is an exercise in a$$holery.No comedy whatsoever.

    Don’t be fooled by the early high ratings They are clearly been paid for! Now about this film, It’s stereotype, loud and pointless. The directing was awful, the music design is pain, the dialog is lame and the performance is sad to look at and It’s hard to even relate to the characters, know or even like them ! If you like watching Adam sandler (and other) shouting around then by all means but I recommend that you wait till it’s available for “free streaming” that you can close it whenever you want without feeling that you got ripped off!!! I know people say an actor can perform till he dies but I believe everyone has his/her limits, sandler clearly is done, all of his late films are trash from bad to worse, I tried to give this a chance but this was the last straw! I’m done with sandler for good.

    I wanted to like this movie. I really did. But I came out feeling a bit ill. The frenetic trailer proved a proper foreshadowing: it was like they extended the same pacing over the entire film. As a result it becomes hard to get to know or even like any of the characters and there was a resultant stock quality to many of them, with no real tension between them provided by the story. It skates too cleanly over the main character’s gambling addiction and Kevin Garnett’s role is almost inscrutable as a character goes; we end up with stereotypes. The tension which exists is generated in the hyperactive cinematography and editing and it leaves you feeling more and more like the end of the film couldn’t come too soon… but when it does its nonsensical… it “wraps things up” but very unsatisfyingly. There’s just not much of a payoff for your 2 1/2 hours. In sum, I’d sit this one out and wait till it’s available to stream.

    I’ve been a fan of Adam since the early days and still go out of my way to watch any film he’s in even if its an absolute embarrassment. We all know his brand of humor and i personally resonate with it a lot. On the other side of the comedic angle of this man is an incredibly emotional dramatic angle that emerges once in awhile from him to blow us away with an honest character portrayal. This film utilizes his acting variety brilliantly and does still have his signature brand of comedy in a more refined nature. At times the story, direction, and overall dialogue style does get a little too contrived but thrives for the most part with some intensity and sly grittiness. Overall this was a surprisingly solid film with a magnificent performance by Sandler that will rnak among his best.

    Ever since watching the Safdie brother’s previous feature, Good Time, I was eagerly awaiting their next feature. Good Time showed that they are masters of tension and momentum, with their impressive culmination of unique characters, editing, dialogue and of course musical scores, and Uncut Gems further cements that they are not only masters of tension, but they are truly two of the most exciting rising filmmakers right now.I usually know how to structure a review, but Uncut Gems is so unconventional in nearly every regard, and frankly I’m not quite sure where to start. It doesn’t let up, ever. Pretty much from the first minute to the end you are shot into a relentless world of chaos among various reoccurring characters, all gravitating around Adam Sandler’s “Howie”. That leads me to Adam Sandler’s performance and character. I LOVED it. Oh boy, is he good. He’s not only fantastic at delivering dialogue for extremely long and exhausting takes, but just seeing his characters psyche continuously digging himself deeper is electric.I’ll leave off with saying Uncut Gems is one of the most exhilarating and unique films that I’ve seen this year. Adam Sandler (and the entire cast) kill it, the musical score is loud and exciting, it looks beautiful, and it has an energy that I haven’t seen in any other film this year.I really can’t wait to see what the Safdie’s come up with next.

    Saw this at TIFF. From front to back, this movie might be most stressful thing I’ve ever seen. I was a huge fan of Good Time and this movie ramps the intensity to an even higher level. Sandler’s performance is great. It just shows that time after time, if he’s working with a good director(s), a strong supporting cast, and an interesting concept, he will absolutely crush it. Also what other movie could have “people watching sports” be the most exhilarating part of the story?I also loved that the score (Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never) is used super strategically to build discomfort, especially when it swells to drown out the dialogue.Looking forward to watching this again when it gets a wide release in December.

    It has been a fascinating ride watching the numerous ups and downs of Adam Sandler’s career. From classic comedies like Happy Gilmore to great dramatic performances like Reign Over Me, he has proven time and time again that he is a very talented guy. The problem is that he has let himself fall out of the spotlight over the last ten years, simply due to the fact that he has been choosing some of the worst films of each year, on multiple occasions. In what might be the greatest performance he has ever given, Uncut Gems is his latest role that will be released this fall. After viewing this at the Toronto International Film Festival and giving it a little time to sink in, I can confidently say that this will end up being one of my favourite films of 2019 by year’s end.Following a jewelry store owner in Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler) as he gets his hands on a precious gemstone from Ethiopia, he decides to lend it to an NBA star in good faith. What sadly becomes apparent is the fact that he has many issues under the surface. Being a really shady figure and having a serious gambling addiction ends up giving this movie an insane amount of tension. This is a roller coaster ride of claustrophobia and I couldn’t get enough of it.Directors Benny and Josh Safdie have been quietly building a solid little career for themselves. Having worked on very small indie projects like Heaven Knows What and then one of 2017s very best movies in Good Time, they’re truly a duo that this industry needs. Their creativity always leaps off the screen in a way that feels very different from other filmmakers working today. This is a movie that heavily relies on pacing, editing, and performances. With a screenplay that requires nearly every performer to constantly be in motion or talking over one another, this movie barely gives you a second to catch a breath.By the time the third act begins, you’ll probably wonder why you have been so invested in Sandler’s portrayal of Howard because he’s really not the best person. With that said, it’s the fact that he is a terrible person deep down and is so greedy that is what made it so engaging and unnerving at times. With the use of periodic psychedelic imagery, a pulse-poundingly superb score, and a slew of uberly talented performers, Uncut Gems is a movie that states from the very beginning that it’s a contender for the upcoming awards season.Overall, some viewers will absolutely wonder what the point of the movie was, due to the nature of how the final few minutes play out, but it was precisely these final moments that took me off guard and had me loving it even more. Personally, I feel that audiences have become impatient with films these days and anything over an hour and a half may seem like a chore to them if they’re not completely on board, so that’s why I would recommend this movie. It’s not short, but the way this movie is put together makes it fly by. I believe this movie can be appreciated by many viewers. Uncut Gems is easily one of the years best films.
