Critic reviews for Cherry
"Sharp Objects" is an excellent mystery because its red herrings aren't the typical time-filling distractions; they're used to make a point.
Cherry's consideration of womanhood, rage and trauma carry a timely meaning in the shadows of the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns.
What comes across in "Cherry" is how the characters use words...When people speak, it's not so much the words they speak, but the tone and intent behind what they say.
Sharp Objects jettisons the completely linear, bird's-eye-view viewpoint we saw last episode on Calhoun Day to put us deeper than ever into Camille's masterfully edited, jittery, deteriorating mental state.
It's blissful, exhilarating, until it's not... It's truly scary, creating a creeping sense that something is deeply wrong in the Crellin house, something even worse than the rampant emotional abuse
