Critic reviews for Vanish
In the space of one hour, Sharp Objects provides us with one of the most layered, dynamic female characters currently on our screens
It shouldn't be too surprising that Sharp Objects' first episode is so deeply, immediately compelling, but it will still come as a relief to die-hard fans of Flynn's book who feared the author's fierce, unflinching voice might not translate.
As a glossy, expensive HBO program, it's a murder mystery that forces us to reflect on our desire to consume it.
The episode lays the groundwork for a compelling murder mystery, but if the series is unable to make Camille's pain palpable, it won't do Flynn's novel justice.
