Uncut Gems

Safdie Brothers Return To The Playhouse!


Winner: Best Actor (Adam Sandler), National Board of Review. Nominated for 5 Independent Spirit Awards. Adam Sandler gives a terrific, career-best performance as a Manhattan jeweller with a perilous gambling habit in a rollicking, high-energy thriller

"This is the year's most exciting film. You can take that to the bank."(Guardian)

"A 134-minute anxiety attack disguised as a movie, Benny and Josh Safdie’s Uncut Gems is a New York trash-terpiece. Adam Sandler stars as Howard Ratner, a constantly yelling, permanently stressed-out Manhattan jeweler. As the film opens, Howard is in deep debt to the Jewish mob (personified by Eric Bogosian), on the outs with both his wife and mistress, negotiating with real-life rappers and NBA stars (The Weeknd and Kevin Garnett play themselves) and, finally, hustling for just one more score. The Safdie brothers start big and fast and dirty and do not stop to take a breath for one single filthy moment. The result is a Vice Magazine circa 2012 article come to life, and I mean that as the highest possible compliment. Bonus: The film features the most realistic depiction of a Passover Seder ever committed to film." – Barry Hertz, The Globe & Mail

"'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!" - Variety

"Suggests 'Mean Streets' by way of Preston Sturges, with a touch of 'Death of a Salesman' to boot - a mesmerizing chronicle of desperate schemes, and it's hard to imagine anyone but Sandler at the center of it."- Indiewire

"It wouldn't be inappropriate to call this thoroughly on-steroids film an edge-of-your-seat experience." - Rogerebert.com
