Dirs. Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie. 2019. 135 mins. 35mm. With Adam Sandler. Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch. From dyed-in-the-wool New York filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie (Good Time) comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Sandler), a charismatic Diamond District jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win. Sandler’s profoundly committed, nerve-jangling performance was considered an Oscar shoo-in throughout the season, yet the Safdies’ rough-and-tumble aesthetic and ragged rhythms—which also should have earned the movie a Best Film Editing nod—must have perplexed voters.
