Sharp Objects: Miniseries Reviews

October 30, 2018
Vallée seems more interested in making everything look "dark," rather than let his fantastic actors take us through their emotional journey.

There is much to recommend Sharp Objects: its visual language is rich and fugal (blades, pigs, fans recur) and rewards close watching. But the dissatisfaction of the show's conclusion speaks to a larger confusion in the aim of the series.

It has everything to be a hit, but Sharp Objects does not captivate. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's slow, confusing, over-gothed and under-articulated. There's a good story squeaking from underneath all the messy baggage it carries, but it's probably easier to just go to Kmart for another suitcase rather than unpack this thing.

The lead performance by Amy Adams as troubled reporter Camille Preaker keeps the show mostly watchable, but it's a chore to get through the dead-end subplots and the slow trickle of narrative developments that surround her.

Sharp Objects scratches the surface of being interesting but can't overcome its dull edges.

Adams is good, "Sharp Objects" is deadly slow.

Frustratingly opaque, and it moves like molasses.
