Uncut Gems glows from the opening seconds of its title sequence onwards. Directors Josh and Benny Safdie guide us down a glittering rabbit hole into the heart of a precious opal to begin this masterful work of filmmaking, and leave us there stunned by its brilliance … This is a sharp and maniacal film that manages to be so intelligently controlled in its hysteria; a tightly constructed examination of obsession, addiction, and arrogance. Uncut Gems is so ambitiously crafted and well-executed, a very special film indeed. Caitlin Quinlan, The Skinny
