Uncut Gems -- 79 pts. Like a PT Anderson movie raised to the 10th power. The Shafdi brothers, like the Coen bothers, are a pair of filmmakers who make films of their own vision. Both of them have made movies which deal with some issues of modern Judaism. Here they create one of the most unlikable lead characters since Jake Lamotta. The well named Harold Ratner is of the stereotype of the Jew who will doing anything for money. The problem is Sandler's portrayal is so authentic. The film can't be faulted for it. It just feels right. I think its major fault is that in its over-the-topness they create a character who would crash and burn within a week. Flawed but worth a look.
