    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★

    Unlucky on all levels cosmic. Uncut Gems operates on a similar level as Good Time, where it feels structureless, but not to a point of abstraction. You don’t quite notice it because you’re being pounded with sensory overload, which thankfully, The Safide Brothers are phenomenal at constructing. Now it may be too early to lay down whether Uncut Gems did this better than Good Time because I have a feeling, just like Good Time, that it’ll grow on me with…

    My quintessential coming of age film, there’s no other in the genre that I’ve seen that remotely holds a candle to it.

    Well, I think I found the best film of 2019. It’s hard to write down my thoughts about this and it all make sense, but forgive me. 


     Fear & anxiety of the unknown and of ourselves. A lost in translation of lust and love. The crippling of an enslaved system followed by a riposte of anger, confusion, and brutality. Breaking the loophole into new discovery all in while of setting yourself free. A dreamscape with nightmares acting as its fuel. High Life
