It’s Hard To Make A Good Movie About Addiction

But ‘Uncut Gems’ wrecks me every time I watch it

I could write 10,000 words about Uncut Gems. I’m still shocked it didn’t earn one Oscar nomination because it’s an absolute masterpiece. You can hold this movie up to the light like the precious stones it’s named for and see different colors and dimensions every time.
