  • The film goes deeper than the brothers ever have into a genuine affection for their various schemers, and that makes all the difference.

  • In 2019, the Waterboy has become a man.

  • Between the Robert Altmanesque sound mix with conversations jumbled on top of each other, the camera that remains jittery even in quiet moments and music that uses stately choral passages not to lull but to disrupt, the Safdies are maestros of messiness.

  • A 134-minute anxiety attack disguised as a movie, Benny and Josh Safdie's Uncut Gems is a New York trash-terpiece.

  • It's a performance as live-wire exciting as the one the Safdies got out of Robert Pattinson in Good Time. And the movie itself is exhilarating. Just bring a Xanax.
