Uncut Gems (2019) Movie review

Post by Neo » Fri Jan 10, 2020 11:15 pm

I went to go see this movie in the theatre and it was not my favorite type of movie.

The main character Howard is always making bad decisions and getting into a ton of trouble.
Then he just keeps making things worse and worse.
The only good thing about this movie is that you can compare your own live to Howards and feel like you don't have things so bad.

I saw this movie and I liked it for all the reasons you mention. I am not an A Sandler fan (comedy) but he often does well in drama. The Jewish tone of the film came out quite well. He is by all acounts an Uncouth Scumbag.

It was just not my type of movie, but I it does make me feel a little better about my life when I compare myself to him.
I wanted to know what happened to the girl at the end? I liked her and would have like to have seen more of her story.
Maybe there will be a part 2 that will go into that.

I don't think anything happened to the girl. Yes, she was sweet but naieve. Why she liked her scumbag boss is questionable. Perhaps it was the attention he was paying her. Pehaps he gave her some gifts as well. Sadly it was overlooked re nominations-Awards.
