    Thankfully, no movies described this week as “a meditation.”  On whatever.  I can’t think of anything to make me less interested.

    It’s such an “in” word these days, I’m a little surprised that someone didn’t refer to Uncut Gems as “a meditation on gambling.”  Ick.

    The word comes up for calm.com but that’s forgivable.

    The audience leaving the theater at the end of Uncut Gems was the most glum and dissatisfied I have ever seen.

    Sonny Bunch talks about the movie’s tension, but that presupposes the audience cares what happens to the protagonist.  The movie fails to establish any sympathy for so unpleasant a character, however, so nobody cares when [SPOILER ALERT] he “ironically” gets his brains blown out at his moment of greatest triumph.

    N.B.:  If the people who made this weren’t Jewish, they would probably be accused of anti-Semitism.

    What, they can’t be self-hating Jews?  Isn’t that a thing any more?

    But I suppose that wouldn’t necessarily lead to accusations of anti-Semitism.

    I won’t see “Uncut Gems” anyway because just I don’t like Adam Sandler Full Stop.  But even if it starred someone I liked a lot, if anyone said it was “a meditation on gambling” then I’m out.
