Critic Reviews for Sharp Objects: Miniseries

All Critics (96) | Top Critics (37)

Sharp Objects is part and parcel of the streaming era, not an outlier. Put another way, don't take my word for it that the show is fantastic.

August 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Sharp Objects feels like it has the most to prove, insistently taking up prestige drama standards and then repositioning, reworking, or flat-out challenging them.

July 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Amy Adams' Sharp Objects stands a good chance at becoming the show of the summer.

July 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It's in the writing and the performances where Sharp Objects excels - this is a tantalising, confident show with a strong female voice, even if that voice sometimes belongs to monsters.

July 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Sharp Objects is bleak by design. It offers little relief. It is sweaty and slow, with the sensory inputs - like all that sound - turned up until the walls and weather close in.

Top Critic

While the storyline contains familiar (not to say overused) crime-story tropes, Sharp Objects succeeds as a mood piece.
