Saw this at TIFF. From front to back, this movie might be most stressful thing I've ever seen. I was a huge fan of Good Time and this movie ramps the intensity to an even higher level. Sandler's performance is great. It just shows that time after time, if he's working with a good director(s), a strong supporting cast, and an interesting concept, he will absolutely crush it. Also what other movie could have "people watching sports" be the most exhilarating part of the story?

I also loved that the score (Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never) is used super strategically to build discomfort, especially when it swells to drown out the dialogue.

Looking forward to watching this again when it gets a wide release in December.

I wanted to like this movie. I really did. But I came out feeling a bit ill. The frenetic trailer proved a proper foreshadowing: it was like they extended the same pacing over the entire film. As a result it becomes hard to get to know or even like any of the characters and there was a resultant stock quality to many of them, with no real tension between them provided by the story. It skates too cleanly over the main character's gambling addiction and Kevin Garnett's role is almost inscrutable as a character goes; we end up with stereotypes. The tension which exists is generated in the hyperactive cinematography and editing and it leaves you feeling more and more like the end of the film couldn't come too soon... but when it does its nonsensical... it "wraps things up" but very unsatisfyingly. There's just not much of a payoff for your 2 1/2 hours. In sum, I'd sit this one out and wait till it's available to stream.

Some Jewish (the fact that he is Jewish is told over and over because it's relevant for some reason) jeweler gets a opal and loses an opal and makes some bet. There's a lot of African American people for some reason and some bad guys that look Italian American or Russian American stereotypes. All this race thing is not by chance but deliberate again for some reason. Everybody shouts and acts like the Horst human kind has to offer for some reason, repeat for 2 hours. The end.

Don't be fooled by the early high ratings They are clearly been paid for! Now about this film, It's stereotype, loud and pointless. The directing was awful, the music design is pain, the dialog is lame and the performance is sad to look at and It's hard to even relate to the characters, know or even like them ! If you like watching Adam sandler (and other) shouting around then by all means but I recommend that you wait till it's available for "free streaming" that you can close it whenever you want without feeling that you got ripped off!!! I know people say an actor can perform till he dies but I believe everyone has his/her limits, sandler clearly is done, all of his late films are trash from bad to worse, I tried to give this a chance but this was the last straw! I'm done with sandler for good.

Ever since watching the Safdie brother's previous feature, Good Time, I was eagerly awaiting their next feature. Good Time showed that they are masters of tension and momentum, with their impressive culmination of unique characters, editing, dialogue and of course musical scores, and Uncut Gems further cements that they are not only masters of tension, but they are truly two of the most exciting rising filmmakers right now.

I usually know how to structure a review, but Uncut Gems is so unconventional in nearly every regard, and frankly I'm not quite sure where to start. It doesn't let up, ever. Pretty much from the first minute to the end you are shot into a relentless world of chaos among various reoccurring characters, all gravitating around Adam Sandler's "Howie". That leads me to Adam Sandler's performance and character. I LOVED it. Oh boy, is he good. He's not only fantastic at delivering dialogue for extremely long and exhausting takes, but just seeing his characters psyche continuously digging himself deeper is electric.

I'll leave off with saying Uncut Gems is one of the most exhilarating and unique films that I've seen this year. Adam Sandler (and the entire cast) kill it, the musical score is loud and exciting, it looks beautiful, and it has an energy that I haven't seen in any other film this year.

I really can't wait to see what the Safdie's come up with next.

Could only take 10 mins of this . Although I love Sandler his voice in this is so forced its torture. Its a shout fest from all the actors in an effort to be heard over the god awful soundtrack......... Not for me.

Sandlers voice is like nails scraping a blackboard. His character worse than any addict I've ever seen or heard of.

The whole thing is an exercise in a$$holery.

No comedy whatsoever.

Adam Sandler FINALLY shows us that he can act in this performance. Unlike all the other "funny guy" characters he has portrayed in the past he gives a believable non slapstick performance that had me care for his character... for once. This is the performance I always knew he could do and I am glad he achieved it.

BUT the film is less than stellar. Truthfully as a film it lacks direction, weak script, weak drive and really doesn't do anything to hook you in.

I found myself yawning a couple of times etc.

Regardless thank you Adam and good for you!

I've been a fan of Adam since the early days and still go out of my way to watch any film he's in even if its an absolute embarrassment. We all know his brand of humor and i personally resonate with it a lot. On the other side of the comedic angle of this man is an incredibly emotional dramatic angle that emerges once in awhile from him to blow us away with an honest character portrayal. This film utilizes his acting variety brilliantly and does still have his signature brand of comedy in a more refined nature. At times the story, direction, and overall dialogue style does get a little too contrived but thrives for the most part with some intensity and sly grittiness. Overall this was a surprisingly solid film with a magnificent performance by Sandler that will rnak among his best.

Too much going on in every scene. The whole film felt like a mad panic to squeeze everything into as little time as possible. No time to take everything in.. a case of quantity but little quality..I hated it ... one huge mess from start to finish.

If you have sensitive ears, the music score of this strange film will disturb you to the point of switching channels. I stuck with it but almost stopped watching several times due to the ridiculous, loud, ill-suited music. Whoever composed or designed the music cannot possibly be a professional. Amateur friend of the Director? If you close your eyes while watching you'd be forgiven for thinking you're watching some low budget version of 'Blade Runner', perhaps made on the Cayman Islands.

As for the plot and script? Frankly, stupid.
