For Howard Ratner, the action is the juice. Forget the outrageous sums of (other peoples') money he recklessly risks with each of his insane bets and schemes: it's the rush of danger that brings him joy, even as it threatens every instinct of self-preservation he might have. It's an assaultive anxiety attack of a film, claustrophobically boxing Howard in and seeing if he can miracle his way out time and again. All you can do is pray, while muttering under your breath: "You fucking idiot."

This is both excruciating and a lot of fun; the decision-making by our hero was beginning to stress me out. Sandler and the broader cast do a great job, and the direction is frenetic, kinetic and snappy. Pretty much every character in this film is a dreadful person, but don't let that put you off. Recommended.

Adam Sandler has never been better, but it was exhausting to watch his character repeatedly double down, raising his odds as if that was his only instinct. He was incredibly lucky and incredibly cursed. The story is shocking and surreal. Well worth watching. Well crafted but not always particularly enjoyable.

I'm a little surprised I didn't find anything I didn't particularly like about this movie. All of the acting is excellent, Sandler giving my new favorite role from his entire filmography. He completely disappears into his character. Everything is constantly moving and everyone is always talking over each other and it makes the film feel unscripted and realistic. I also really dug the directing. These guys know how to direct chases and conversations equally as well. Great stuff.

An exercise on fate & character, Fortuna & Virtu. It opens with an "accident" & walks us through the universe, the sum of all possibilities. Howard wants to conquer these possibilities, overcome fortune. That's why he bets, he is on the move & can't stop for a sec, he's in a race with destiny. In a reified world, he's a player. He's not after the thing, but the excitement. That's why when he sees Julia naked, before the sex he makes a game & adds excitement. Also, "Killing of a Chinese Bookie".

With a protagonist so wholly despicable, yet it's difficult to relish in his misfortune, "Uncut Gems" gives the viewer no one to root for. The Safdie brothers have perfectly mastered a tensity unmatched by veterans while still only in their 30's, but they have yet to write a compelling character.

Terribly unpleasant to watch. It's ugly, loud and annoying. Sandler gives a great performance, the soundtrack is pretty nifty and a handful scenes are really good, but the rest is just unwatchable for me. Annoying characters making awful decisions and then paying for it while creating new awful decisions. Painful to watch and not in a good way.

This is much better than Good Time on every level. It's got gem auctions and it's got Kevin Garnett and it's got NBA betting and Adam Sandler in a performance that is actually great. The suspense is on acid, will KG get over 8.5 rebounds? I'm a sucker for this type of action, I just love this stuff.

An effective soundtrack and strong central performance have little consolatory effect on a film that's little more than awful people doing awful things and getting treated awfully because of it. The Safdie brothers can draw out incredibly human performances, but I don't know if anybody asked for this one; it's ugly, painful, and frenetic. Intentionally, perhaps, but unpleasant from start to finish.

Remake of and homage to BAD LIEUTENANT (1992), but as Jewish rather than Catholic, which means: less guilt, less drugs, and a little more calculation (but ultimately still aimed at the ineffable and the incalculable). Very tense and effective study of a character who might contain the whole universe within him but whose cosmos remains fundamentally and perpetually unstable, something that drives him further and further, in spite and because of the risk of self-destruction he thereby courts.

If Howard Ratner survived a skydiving session, he'd look for the next opportunity to bungee jump. Instead he deals jewels and gambles his winnings, and the Safdies put the camera right into his smiling face and let us wriggle into despair, hoping this loser with a heart and a drive can pull a win. In the end, Josh and Benny win - and so do we.

I pretend to know who thought "hey, that song is really cool, why not use it to COVER EVERY OTHER SOUND OR DIALOG FOR THE FIRST 10 MINUTES". For me it has been like watching a parody of a gangster b-movie, with stereotyped characters doing and saying stupid things. Staging is loud and confused in every scene. Terrible plot too: at halfway through the movie I started asking myself if I really cared about if Sandler's character would have been able to recover that opal. Great acting by Adam anyway

Exhausting, oppressively ugly and abrasive film is brilliantly constructed, and Sandler's one man tour-de-force of intensity is kind of incredible, but it's difficult to discern why the Safdies want to trudge their audience through this bleak morass - by the climax, you're happy it's over, but it's ultimately a sad and hollow feeling. The technical merits and feel for Howard's dangerous and desperate world are first rate, but not sure if this is a journey which would reward multiple visits.

Sandler in rare dramatic form playing an impulsive jerk who throws caution to the wind and lives perpetually on the edge, addicted to the thrill of the chase. Inevitably, his life spirals out of control, but part of the fascination is watching Howard make one rash decision after the next, and the Safdie's translate his mental state well through jarring cuts and musical cues. It ultimately gets tiring watching dumb, loud and annoying characters doing dumb, loud and annoying things though.

Life affirming-ly great cinema, made with a genuinely guerrilla and collaborative sensibility sorely missing from many contemporaries.

This is a stressful experience really, with Howard's problems cascading on top of one another each with a new, darker shade of gravity, all having to be managed while someone or something is banging louder and louder in the background like a headache that won't quit. Frantic, ugly, mobile camera work meshes well with the awful people on screen. I tell you, ending aside Howie would have had an aneurysm in the next scene anyway.

passed about like ophuls' earrings, the gems circulate a path bisecting the worlds of sport & cinema, where ground-level aspiration & romantic dreams of transcendence meet the system shaping & profiting from them. if good time approached scoldy sadism (even the title is a bit much), here the safdies' understanding of the nature of the game doesn't stop the players shining; set against the charm & euphoric, demented energy of this golden ensemble, the scathing critique only hits harder.

The Safdie Brothers sure know how to induce stress. I have to really commend the sound design, which is so confusing and disorienting. Things just ratchet up more and more and more until you almost can't stand it. And, as has been said many times already, Sandler knocks it out of the park.

Throwing a dozen problems at your unsympathetic protagonist in a single scene that he then solves by creating five new ones might make your film feel "frantic", but that's no substitute for a thrilling progression of the story. All of the characters in the movie were unlikeable, all for their own reasons, none of them interesting. In the end, even the big twist left me cold as I did not care for any of the characters. I was just glad it was finally over.

Never seen anything operate on this level. Feels impossible not to get caught up in the relentless, spiralling momentum of it, and the powerful subconscious urge for someone really ugly to succeed is a testament to this. There's a sensation of being fully absorbed into the stress, anxiety and euphoria of someone else's compulsion loops, and Sandler's ability to generate pathos in spite of his actions is something I can't even put my finger on. Lopatin's score elevates it even higher.

Yeah, the Safdies made this entirely for me and I won't hear anything else. So many great scenes but When he's watching his first bet and his son is betting on the game with his friends and they're watching the game together and he puts his arm on his son I got a little misty eyed. The fact that I knew the exact outcome of that game and was still on the edge of my seat speaks to how well the Safdies crafted this movie. This movie is pure energy. An instant fav.

Think I need to rewatch this with lower expectations. Pales in comparison to Good Time after a first watch. The main issue for me is that Howard is so unlikable that I did not care one bit whether he succeeded or not, and as a result I didn't feel any of the tension, stress, panic, or anxiety that seems to have gripped everyone else. There's still some great film craft and acting to appreciate

Watching this makes you forget about 80% of Adam Sandler's catalog of work. Uncut Gems has its flaws, but it is undoubtedly entertaining. It's weird watching this built up and constantly beating frenetic energy work so well in a film like this. Despite Sandler's performance, his character isn't very likable. Because of that, I don't feel so engaged that it is tension-building worthy. Instead, it feels like I'm just watching chaos with some great performances. Pretty good.

Intense, harsh, gritty, a work of busy realism stretched and twisted to comically absurd extremes. I don't think I've ever pulled my hair so much watching a comedy.

And no one who sees this will ever doubt Adam Sandler's acting credentials again.

The intensity the Safdies are able to wring out of this in every aspect of the filmmaking (not just plotting, but mise en scene, unsteady cam, and especially that sound design) creates a truly empathetic experience, allowing us to walk in another man's shoes. However, there's enough objectivity in the camera for us to also understand the grave stakes in a way he simply never does. Loved seeing the mysteries and beauties of the universe through this man's life.

Adam Sandler and the Safdie's are a perfect combination. Absolutely brilliant; Sandler gives what is easily his best performance so far, going absolutely above and beyond expectations which in my case were actually high because he has showcased the ability to turn in great performances outside of his usual comedy shtick. The Safdie's on all fronts deliver another excellent film, utilizing and even surpassing the pace of their previous efforts in the process making an experience that is must see

This is not my kind of movie. It's loud, chaotic, miserable and one-note. But I have to admit, somewhat begrudgingly: this is a very good movie. It's stylish in an off-the-cuff, explosion-of-colour-and-form kind of way. Even though I didn't really care about Howard Ratner's fate, I was engrossed by him. I do understand the few negative reviews that exist for this movie. But for me, it works as a character study, and as a raw audiovisual experience. I liked it despite myself.

I liked this more than Good Time and enjoyed the energy that Sandler brought to the role, but for some reason I can't get into what the Safdie brothers are bringing to the table like everyone else seemingly can. Like Good Time there's an attempt to be frenetic, but unlike some other movies that try that, it got tiresome. Admittedly this had more heart and better characters, but aside from the ending I can't say I loved any one bit. Poor musical choices, made the tone seem silly to me.

Uncut Gems is an uncouth gem. The film matches 80’s-esque synth music and neon-lights with a frantic lead on a downward spiral. Several of the encountered characters were already exasperated, and it wasn’t long before I was as well. This however seems to be the Safdie’s aim as they drag you into their depraved world of scum and villainy. Every character is vile, so there’s no rooting for anyone, but it’s hard not be be engaged. Sandler does well, but the film isn’t rewatchable.

It goes up and down in pure human mayhem in a late capitalist world, where the man who places bets with the money he's supposed to pay debts never thinks things are gonna go sour. Even when they do. Lend an Ethiopan opal to KG so he can win that six figure bet for ya and you can pay the bad guys and escape with your mistress.

While Adam Sandler is a force to be reckoned with and his awards snub is certainly criminal, the minor characters (i.e. Wayne Diamond) can live out their lives for the rest of their days on screen and I would not be bored for a single second. Its melding of the comedic and tragic, the grimy and glamorous, the stressful and seamless, is perfect, and will go down as one of the greatest films of the decade, in due time. That and The Master, they sort of vine neck-and-neck in that aspect.

This movie is simply alive in a way most others are not. It hums and whirs and vibrates with a chaos-energy all its own. Adam Sandler loses himself in Howard Ratner, who within five minutes of the film's start becomes one of the most memorable characters of all time. The score, by Daniel Lopatin, casts an otherwordly pall over Ratner's downward spiral; makes manifest the alluring and alienating nature of his addiction. The Safdies have made something kind of legendary here.

Another dose of anxiety from the Safdie brothers, with a knockout performance from Sandler - and yet I can't help feeling a bit unsatisfied. Having seen their previous film Good Time recently, it becomes obvious that the two share a lot of similarities - same self-destructive lead, same arc, same synths, etc. It's a bit of a let down and I'd like to see the Safdies branch out a bit. Still, I enjoyed it. But the same tricks won't work a third time.

A cinematic joy, though I'm sure it'll look better, uhh, in an actual cinema. A lot of the plot points feel very familiar, but it's in the details of how the characters get to each one that shows the genius of this film, its directors, and the cast (both professional and non-actors). There's such a candy-coated ugliness, in cinematography and Howard's completely flaccid morality, but the film's energetic sense of fun kept me utterly enthralled and thrilled (towards a near heart attack).

Safdies build another exhausting modern classic. A captivating disaster of characters lying and pulling cons on each other, while the few moments of truth remain indistinguishable. More plotlines and more complex ones than the simple desperation of Good Times but not to the point of making the story unfollowable. A theme of profiting off of third-world workers never seems relevant enough outside of two short unsubtle scenes.

Definitely messed with my anxiety throughout the entire thing but it was a good movie and worth it.

This was good. When Sandler is good, he is good. The film comes together well and is good at depicting an addicts spiral into chaos. Every part comes together really nicely for a nice final crescendo.

I wanted to shoot Adam Sandler's character in the head myself, 30 mins in. #WinStupidPrizes

An absolute panic attack of a movie. Sandler is superb, the direction is beautifully choreographed chaos and the soundtrack compliments perfectly. I think I may actually find even more to admire in subsequent viewings, once my fucking nerves recover in about 6 months!

Wow, what a movie. Adam Sandler was perfect. Oneohtrix Point Never was perfect. The storytelling had so much kinetic, frenetic energy. "This is how I win!"

With Good Time and now this, the Safdie brothers know how to make you cheer for a scummy character. I've never liked Adam Sandler, but he is great here at making you extremely uncomfortable with all of his decisions. Kevin Garnett is also fun.

Driving, cohesive, evocative and fun. It's a finely tuned scramble of poor decisions as we watch Sandler's detestable huckster break apart and stumble. A great ride for those who aren't bothered by a cast of spoiled narcissists.

This film has an interesting script. Adam Sandler is great in the lead role here. Most of the main characters are unlikable in this movie. Overall I would recommend this drama.
