The frenetic pace and performance in Uncut Gems makes for a very effective thriller. Watching this film was very stressful, as the main character makes bad decision after bad decision. He is a con man and an over-talker, which adds to the chaotic quality of the story. This is a wild ride, presented so well, that it really drew me in. As unnerving as that was, it was effective and satisfying. I liked this film a lot.
