Uncut Gems 3/2020

Uncut Gems – 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.

Q-tips say: The Mr. liked it and found it interesting that Adam Sandler, was highlighted in a different role than usual – but he was glad he got what he deserved. I say it’s being a tad over-valued.¬† Also, I never thought a score could be so detrimental to a movie, but after this odd score played over the dialogue for the first 20 minutes of the film I was tempted to stop watching- but did not.
