Nothing excites me more than seeing this younger generation of directors consistently putting out great movies. These are going to be the ones we’re talking about years from now, and I’ll be able to say I saw them on opening night.
See this as soon as possible and give Josh and Benny all your money. They’ve put out five terrific movies and if I could singlehandedly finance their next movie I would.
Uncut Gems was the best Christmas gift I could have asked for ❤️🙏🏼 💎
Not bad by any means, but certainly the outlier in Mungiu’s filmography. It actually has more in common with Radu Jude‘s Bad Luck Banging than any of his other films. What he’s attempting to do with the structure is clever, even if it doesn’t always pay off. I still prefer his bleaker work (especially Beyond the Hills, which I would argue is his masterpiece), but this really deserves a proper release. I hope IFC eventually picks this up.
