Critic Reviews for Milk

Its gimlet-eyed curiosity about the damage women can wreak initially felt fresh. It's too bad that's all Sharp Objects was interested in.

But the longer you sit with it, the more fitting this ending feels. "Sharp Objects" was told in flashes; it's only fitting it ends with a bang.

Milk develops a conclusion so breathtaking and harrowing that the sharp objects in the show's inventory pierce deeper than they have before.

While yes, I get that's the nature of a twist, there were very few, if any, warning signs, and the scope of Amma's murderous streak was wide enough to warrant more explanation than conjecture. Ultimately, the finale felt unearned.

The finale of Sharp Objects will no doubt leave viewers with an uneasy feeling.

That gut-wrenching moment is why the show, and specifically this finale, is so brilliant, so intoxicating, and so potentially the best hour of television ever made.

It's fitting that Persephone, the goddess most known for her suffering, is finally evoked in the last episode of Sharp Objects.

It's challenging, powerful storytelling anchored by three of the best performances in recent memory, and a remarkable tribute to the dark, indomitable hearts of women.

But it's been clear from the start that Sharp Objects is not really a murder mystery, and anyone waiting solely for the resolution of that storyline will probably be disappointed. The show is a character study.

None of this acting comes close to the Oscar-worthy performance that Camille is forced to turn in during Sharp Objects' series finale, which aired Sunday night.
