Critic reviews for Dirt
We do love to look. And this is where Sharp Objects lives up to its title. There are lots of sharp objects, all causing pain, and director Jean-Marc Vallée turns our attention on to them with intense focus.
In another terrific episode that masterfully blends the shocking past with the foreboding present, Dirt explores the pain, gossip and memories tormenting, namely, the women of Wind Gap.
Adora is quickly surpassing Camille as Sharp Objects' most intriguing and complex character.
We join our unlikely hero... um, our unlikely... uh... we join Camille Preeker in bed. Her memory is flashing between past and present, a disorienting experience that seems to plague her often.
