Some quick thoughts about Uncut Gems.

Uncut Gems tonally reminded me of Bad Lieutenant (1992) even though both films are very different. Both men are self destructive and searching for something to believe in and they take a gamble. One roots for Harvey Keitel as much as they root for Adam Sandler despite both characters being selfish and repugnant people. Easily the best role of Sandler's career and the best drama he's appeared in since Punch Drunk Love. More drama Adam, please.
