Uncut Gems is so good that it makes me hate everything else Adam Sandler has done more than I already did... with the exception of Punch Drunk Love and That's My Boy.
Take Dennis Hopper's incredibly coked-out scenery chewing away from this movie and all you're left with is a fairly mediocre story about a shitty has-been manger and the musician whose image/career he's trying to build. Even with that this movie is dull. The novelty of Hopper's insanity wears off quickly and, aside from a few funny parts, his drug induced ad-libbing is pretty uninteresting. Really disappointing considering that the director's Deadlock is a great movie. Maybe it's just me but…
