The Uncut Gems soundtrack is the second Safdie brothers movie scored by Lopatin, following 2017’s Good Time, for which he received the Best Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Daniel Lopatin and the Safdie brothers have developed a close partnership through their shared love of cult films and music. Lopatin recently was interviewed by Variety: “The composer believes that ‘real filmmaking is every department having as much heart, as much soulful connectivity as possible, to the ideas that are firmly in place in the movie. When we do that, the result is what you hear. That’s our style. We certainly had the luxury of having so much freedom.'”
