Uncut Gems ★★★★

Not at all what I was expecting. I mean I knew it’d be tense and claustrophobic and well-acted (made a whole video on Sandler, he better give a great performance) but what I didn’t expect was how...huge this film is.  The Safdie Brothers have historically tackled large themes with simpler plots and with a story this complex, despite a clear mastery of the techniques they’re known for, this feels like new territory. Uncut Gems is an inSANELY well thought out story with dozens of storylines working together (almost) perfectly. Feels like the darkest fairytale I’ve ever experienced.
