IndieWire - Eric Kohn
If Uncut Gems leaves people rattled, disoriented, grasping for clarity in the chaos of one man’s hectic routine, that all speaks to the sheer precision of a visionary achievement in full control.
95
Vanity Fair - K. Austin Collins
Uncut Gems is a movie that lives in the gut, where shit makes a name for itself, where anxiety, folly, and instinct are borne out without morality or restriction.

The Playlist - Rodrigo Perez
Uncut Gems is an insane ride with no respite that will grind your senses down to their last nerve.

The A.V. Club - A.A. Dowd
The queasy thrill of Sandler’s live-wire performance is the way he keys us right into Howard’s electric joy, putting everything on the line, consequences be damned. It’s a pure shot of the gambler’s high, and Uncut Gems gets us hooked on it, too. By the end, you want to hurl and cheer.

The Film Stage - Unnamed
Howard’s personality overpowers reality for so long that when reality finally hits it is genuinely shocking and painful.
