Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems ★★★★

Gone are the beauty and potency found in Good Time, yet present is still another technically well-made crime thriller that I found more frustrating than thrilling, with a career-best performance from Adam Sandler, who plays a scumbag jeweler and husband we wish we weren’t forced to root for; a frenetic pace mixed with a taut, reckless plot that almost never gives us time to breathe; several stressful scenes that raise the film to the level of exhausting; and a shocking albeit rightfully uncompromising ending.
