Review: 'Uncut Gems' mines the best of Adam Sandler's talent
By now, we shouldn't be too surprised by this cultural contradiction known as Adam Sandler. How does such a man get through life, and what about the people who have to live with him? In his best performances, Sandler offers a dark, bruising exploration of this state of being that actually tells us something. Kevin Garnett is still playing for the Boston Celtics and The Weeknd is a relative newcomer to the music scene. As for Sandler, he deserves the accolades he's getting, again proving that with the right material, he has an uncanny ability to reach deep within us, despite our deep, DEEP annoyance.
