A conventional plot -- young reporter returns to her Missouri home town to cover local murders -- is given an interesting 'look' by director Jean-Marc Vallée (though the profusion of two-second flashbacks becomes annoying). There we meet the passive-aggressive mother from hell (Patricia Clarkson), whose 'damaged' reporter daughter (Amy Adams) tries to find her bearings, sort of, while looking for the killer ... and drinking the town dry in the process. She is, we are continually reminded, a victim of her past, so let's not be too hard on her -- that seems to be the message of the series. Didn't work for me, even with the reveal ending. It's too bad, though, because the ambiance created by Vallée's direction is worth seeing.

tawdry American Gothic - sordid murder, alcoholism, generalized psychological dysfunction - with lighting so minimal that you can mostly see only silhouettes acting, you could, indeed, get by with just the soundtrack - couldn't make it past the first episode

Great performances all around! Great series...difficult to watch... the ways that families hide and reveal wounds never ceases to amaze me. And the good news is: If we are grading 'on a curve', you will forgive YOUR OWN family after watching this!!

Started out so slow and I was expecting something a little different. Then, it changed and I was so completely blown away by the ending. Talk about a dysfunctional family! Amy Adams was excellent as was the sound track. Make sure to watch the final credits all the way thru.

I guess maybe I didn't pay attention or just didn't get it. I was very disappointed when it ended. Or rather, didn't end at all. Waste of time.

Sharp Objects is a terrific mini-series filled with dark characters, plenty of relevant flashbacks, a setting in Missouri and a plot that builds and changes as the story progresses. I was equally pleased that the movie matched the book in both description and storyline. Enjoy!
