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

What's fascinating is that Camille's old friends do have those resources, and some combination of inertia, fear and the pride they take in being at the top of the social order keeps them frozen in place.

I'll never get sick of The Acid's trippy "Tumbling Lights." It so perfectly encapsulates Camille's enchantingly demented hallucinations.

I know there are mixed feelings about the pace of Sharp Objects, but I'm enjoying its slow creep immensely.

"Cherry" is a powerhouse of an episode... It crackles and sings with such an astute understanding of mood it left me feeling as bruised as Camille does at the end.

All over Wind Gap, people are waking up.
