More than any specific line, though, it’s the general mood that comes from watching characters in a movie about greed and deadly gambling just repeating “fuck” over and over and over again that really makes the clip feel appropriate.
applies well to so much else, from Democratic primary results in America to unemployment benefit announcements.
As you watch Adam Sandler’s Howard Ratner grow increasingly anxious and desperate, he and other characters yelling variations on “fuck” in every possible inflection, it’s hard not to think that the compilation maps well to the psychological descent we’ve all experienced over the past seven months.
Created in honor of the fact that “Uncut Gems has the 4th most F-bombs in movie history,” Netflix’s Twitter account cut together a video showing “all 560 of them.”
And while we’ll have to wait a while for movies, music, and novels that deliberately capture the feeling of living through this awful time, it turns out that a compilation of every “fuck” muttered, screamed, or shouted throughout 2019's Uncut Gems works pretty well for now as a good summation of our general mood.
