Fuck, Uncut Gems is such a great movie. The Safdie Brothers‘ butt-clenching tale of a jeweler (Adam Sandler) digging himself deeper and deeper into a greed-fueled hole is not only a brilliantly-realized crime-thriller, but also holds the unique distinction of saying the word “fuck” the fourth-most times in film history*. Who needs an Oscar?
Some mad genius at Netflix recently took the time to isolate every “fuck” in Uncut Gems, all 560 of them, and it’s truly awe-inspiring. Take four minutes out of your day and witness this art.

*In case you were wondering, “fuck” record-holders 1-3 are 1) Swearnet: The Movie, 2) A documentary literally titled Fuck, and 3) The Wolf of Wall Street.
