What does it cost the Ethiopians to mine those exotic gems so that people like Howard can get rich? Uncut Gems provides an insightful analysis on the subject matter while enclosing it inside a scintillating thriller that delivers a tight slap to those rooting for a badass protagonist. At the end, blood oozing out of the tiny bullet wound on Howard's face becomes one and the same with the sweat and blood of the native Africans, their only way to earn a living.
