Title: Uncut Gems {2019}
Post by: woodenheart on September 22, 2019, 02:41:06 PM
From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.

Trailer premiere Sept. 24th. Released Christmas Day. Adam Sandler's performance is suppose to be outstanding. Oscar worthy.

I may have to watch the Awards this year. The talk is Joaquin for Joker, Adam for Uncut Gems and Tom Hanks {Supporting Actor} for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Interesting.

The review from Variety says Uncut Gems “feels like being locked inside the pinwheeling brain of a lunatic for more than two hours – and guess what: It’s a gas!”

Saw a screening of this last night and holy shit, what a fuckin' movie!

I know everyone will see Adam Sandler and automatically be turned off but this movie is damn close to perfection.
From the story, to the way it is filmed, the score, and Sandler's performance cannot be ignored. I actually think
this movie is better than The Irishman.

Do yourself a favor and give this a watch, you will not be disappointed!


Yes motherfucker we are going Christmas Day!  :yay: Adam is gonna be nominated.  :yes:
