Underscore? Try overscore. The co-star of “Uncut Gems” is undoubtedly the film’s music. The result of a second collaboration between composer Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, and director Josh Safdie, the cosmically synthesized score blends multiple Moog tones for a sonic identity to accompany Adam Sandler’s role as Manny.
There is something about Daniel Lopatin and his ability to break things down. He makes it feel all so obvious and simple, when the reality is probably something different. This is the same with his breakdown of Sticky Drama on Song Exploder.
