    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    Jesus Christ, the exhale I did at the end of this film. Adam Sandler does a predictably incredible job, but honestly every performance in this movie is terrific. Stunning, tense, and surprisingly funny in a very dark way. Nobody builds tension out of overlapping dialogue like the Safdies. And that SCORE! Oh– if the Academy fucking ignores this one like they did Good Time, they're only gonna be embarrassing themselves.

    I have mixed feelings on how this film handles the "it's Fox News" of it all, but Margot Robbie and Charlize Theron are doing absolutely stunning work here and the final resolution of the film is perfectly sobering and honest in a way that I didn't expect it to be. Also, every (white) actor in Hollywood is in this film! Good on them.

    This movie means nothing. They just went “what’s big right now? incels and antifa? those are the same” and rolled it all into an existing character that could use politically and socially relevant anxieties as developing characteristics... but to make absolutely no “message.” and no, films don’t have to have a message (lemme just preempt that dumb comment someone always wants to make) but it’s so clear that this movie wants you to think it has one. it doesn’t. joker…

    this is going to sound extremely stupid but my big problem with this movie is that nobody has eyebrows and i truly believe the movie would be fine if everybody just had eyebrows
