Can cut that not polished?

Anticipating the Oscar race in the end of December 2019. in US in wide release released crime Thriller brothers Safdi "Uncut jewels". The film immediately received high praise from American critics are not only work of master Directors and operator, but and brilliant drama incarnation of Adam Sandler image of the protagonist. Counting the "Uncut Gems" one of their top favorites, the critics were universally outraged that the Academy did not even turned it on the short list of films nominated for"Oscar". Captured on the platform Netflix, "Uncut jewels" in the end of January appeared in Russia until have an official distributor.

In the center of the plot of "Uncut Gems" — Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler) — the owner of a jewelry store in the prestigious "Diamond district" of new York, and not in the best period of his life. It hero — gamers, obsessed with basketball, on the jeweler who always bets on the tote, trying to improve his shattered financial situation. Ratner is constantly lying — family, customers, creditors, turns any frauds, schemes, and running on life in a pace that he had no time to stop and think. Perhaps in the deep down, he feels bogged down all deeper and deeper, but brakes have no. Psychologically, this process is compounded by the fact that is usually pathological lying poorly amenable to correction, because in the first man is lying to himself.

Around Howard lives his life big, noisy city, but often there is a feeling that Ratner lonely and longer does not belong to himself: have a large Jewish family, a young mistress, a lot of problems and debt, and also bully lenders "on the tail". All his actions — is as the perfectionism inside out, when the desire to improve the situation leads to the opposite result. All hope Howard for fancy huge opal precious rough patches, which he plans to sell on auction for a round sum, hoping someone with will more than cover its many debts.

Of course, the "Uncut jewels" in first and foremost, a crime drama. The film does not easy to perception and sometimes its even hard to watch, but the concentration of events and speed development it just rolls over. It seems that hero lives in principle — "all or nothing", "merges" in one trouble for another, which is nothing but blood and pain, he is not bring, but still Ratner manic is sure that he will hit the Jackpot and will solve all your problems he must be lucky!

One of the regular sources of tension dynamics in the film is the sound: city noise, electronic music, dialogue, continuous speech, and also the infinite chaotic movement of the main character, when the events are superimposed on the other is it possible to take a time-out. In the end, for me, the most unexpected "Uncut Gems"was the ending, which gives some reference to Tarantino or guy Ritchie. And even with given the uneven and outrageous behavior of the character, even in bad dream I could imagine such unpredictable and, in the same time, the natural ending.

What "Rough jewels" removed dynamically, emotionally, it's loud, it just style brothers Safdi: the plot continuously moves on a great, adrenaline speed, and camera operator Darius Khonji closely followed the main character, like follow him heels. All this envelops atmospheric electronic soundtrack Daniel Lopatin, which only enhances the dynamism of the dialogues and the narrative.

However, the center of gravity of the film becomes Adam Sandler! This reincarnation, the drama, the severity of the nuances, denounced them from the screen. It hero mixed feelings: when rejection, when pity, when involuntary compassion and even the desire to the latest adventure ended well, because of life of all Ratner so confusing and bad that I want to see the light. Sandler is not just done for his role, but how to write a criticism, perhaps it is the best role in his career and I agree.

And all well, where did the name "Uncut jewels"? I think it is likely a metaphor, because each of the us — a jewel that needs to cut!

Good luck to you view!

I watched this masterpiece of a minute ago, and review beginning to write in the process. On the moment I lit the face, pounding heart, shaking hands, which same sweaty, breathing quickens. No, I did not run the marathon in bed, I watched a drama with Adam Sandler. Even a year ago, two of these words "drama" and"Sandler" in the same sentence was, to put it mildly, impossible.

I think not only I watched this movie due to the hysterics of Hollywood stars in the moment when Adam's not nominated nor what. I bribed Brad pitt, which gave the best description of Uncut Gems: "I was so anxious to watch this film that I even got up to drink some water." I water not absolutely felt at this rate I'm definitely going with makuhoj. Difficult to see screen not wanting to look away. There there is nothing vile, horrible or disgusting, it's hard to keep track of this swiftness! I would do this movie translated it as "Swift flight to the bottom."

The plot revolves around a cunning Jew with a pathological problem: he does not able to handle money (a paradox!), people and their reputation. And the remains of it is humanity, it is it from American horror story. All the role of Sandler saturated with it, not may it not to be loved. Not me and all. Even the gross personality he is so you can hate. Here even the moments of it, so to say of ORDINARY life play a huge role. Carrying the debris (as it would call us) the father of the family, a man worried about your fish, Jewish, family get-togethers. All this adds normal prizemlennosti. And then it again it runs from the collector Lombard, from the pawn shop on the auction, from wife's mistress back so a circle, endlessly. Question with five minutes of the film and as end? And when? Options many, but to stop it can't. Also as and you, when you watch the film. No up or to depart. Just nervous, excited, panicked, gasping for breath.

Art episodes, seared on the retina, delightful "filters retro-Cam", the soundtrack if you now in the club something incendiary. It is impossible in the normal state through the range of emotions that covers from this movie.

Thank you ceremony Independent spirit award for that noted dramatic actor Adam Sandler, who holds the tension of the audience as a vet for the cat.. .
