Adam Sandler made a secret film in disguise in Times Square

Now that Josh and Benny Safdie, the filmmakers behind last year's sustained cinematic panic attack Uncut Gems, have given audiences around the world anxiety, they've reteamed with star Adam Sandler to provide a slightly lower-key viewing experience in the form of a new short film. The film follows Howard Ratner (Sandler), a jeweler and game addict in the Diamond District of New York City, who falls in love with the usurers and must recover an expensive jewel he bought to pay off his debts. We would've been excited if we'd known.

Sandler and Benny star as competing street performers in NY, the titular Goldman and Silverman.

What's fun about Goldman v Silverman is it's taking place in Times Square, so Adam Sandler and Benny Safdie are surrounded by the real tourists populating the commercial intersection. Sandler was a dark horse to receive an Oscar nomination for best actor after receiving the National Board of Review awards and the Gotham Awards and Independent Spirit Awards nominations. The Safdie Bros. gained Best possible Director on the New York Movie Critics Circle and Best possible Screenplay on the Nationwide Board of Overview. In addition to Adam Sandler for the best male lead, the film also received nominations for the best feature film, the best director, the best screenplay and the best editor. "Uncut Gems" can now be seen in cinemas across the country. "Goldman v Silverman" and "Uncut Gem stones" could be the ultimate Safdie brothers' movies we get for a twinkling of an eye, so it'd be sensible to cherish each second of them.

Despite missing out on the Academy's nomination for Best Film, the brothers are up for a handful of Indie Spirit Awards on February 8.
