Adam Sandler is in Betting Trouble in 'Uncut Gems'

I’m not a huge Adam Sandler fan, although I can admit that he has occasionally shown flashes of being a good actor in the past (Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish). This time he’s making a play for Oscar, apparently, or at least according to the people who saw Uncut Gems at Telluride. It’s supposed to be pretty damn good, with a 94% Rotten Tomatoes rating (and even more significantly, an 88 on Metacritic). It comes out December 13th.
