On the 109th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for the first episode of 2020, a movie that was probably my #1 most anticipated of 2019… Uncut Gems. After the Safdie Brothers blew my mind with their film 2017 film Good Time, they return with an anxiety inducing story set in the NYC diamond district starring Adam Sandler. Puzzle pieces include Punch Drunk Love, Requiem For A Dream, Boiler Room and California Split.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Uncut Gems and the movies we discuss!
Writer / Director – Josh & Benny Safdie
Starring Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel, LaKeith Stanfield, Kevin Garnett
