Despite his many comedic contributions to cinema, Adam Sandler occasionally likes to remind us that he’s secretly a terrific dramatic actor. His explosive manchild in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2002 romance Punch-Drunk Love. His semi-autobiographical dying comedian in 2009’s Funny People. His loveable Dad in 2017’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), in which he outshone Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman. No matter how good he’s been in the past, there’s no denying that his performance as an indebted New York jeweller in The Safdie Brother’s thriller Uncut Gems is simply unbelievable. It’s like watching a version of Sandler beamed from an alternate universe in which he left SNL and decided to become Al Pacino. This isn’t just a great Sandler performance. This is one of the best performances of the decade.
