Dir. Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie. USA, 2019. 2h 15m. Starring Adam Sandler, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, The Weeknd, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch.

A fast-talking, charismatic New York jeweller must cheat and deceive a series of low-lifes and high-rollers in a bet that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. From acclaimed filmmakers the Sadie Brothers (Good Time) comes a relentlessly nerve-jangling crime thriller with an electrifying central performance by Adam Sandler.

‘It is the most arrhythmia-inducingly tense film I have seen in years: by the end, I felt as if I’d spent the last two hours being dangled by my ankles over a crocodile pit.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

'The most absurd, anxiety-inducing 134 minutes of your life. A devastating fever dream about the consequences of chasing an ever-illusive high.’ ★★★★★ Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies
