Critic reviews for Fix
These scenes call on an effortless charm, then an apprehensive fortitude, outright anger, forced humility, contemplative concern, and restrained self-loathing, respectively; Adams is always on point, while Camille is always on the edge of hurting herself.
The show... is intercut with dazzlingly dream-like imagery, making it hard at times to decipher between what's true and what's imagined. Maybe I'm expecting too much realism from a show with gothic and fantastical edges.
While I hope the rest of the series avoids sacrificing plot for character, Fix is still an astonishingly accomplished hour that begins the show's middle stretch incredibly effectively.
It feels like a mystery series with characters that are already more compelling than its mystery.
"Fix" is Sharp Objects' most gorgeous episode yet, stylish and unnerving.
