Uncut Gems – The new Safdie Brother’s kinetic mayhem

For those who have seen GOOD TIMES will revel in this movie filled with tension and high dynamic scenes. For those uninitiated to the Safdie brother’s film language, you will find this movie annoying and chaotic to watch. Like it or not, you have to give credit to the Safdie brothers for having a cinematic style, much like Quentin Tarantino and his own signature styles that’s prevalent in all his movies. This time around, the story revolve around Adam Sandler and his world filled with debt dodging and his gambling addiction. Much like Robert Pattison in his teenage mess of a life in Good Times, Adam Sandler’s character live in a grown up, middle aged version. Needless to say trouble and mayhem follow him throughout the movie right up to the shocking conclusion. Is it a chaotic movie? Yes it is. But that’s not to say it is a bad movie, not by a very long shot. I actually enjoy watching it throughout. Especially since I just got out of watching the disappointing “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” before Uncut Gems.
