Did You Know?


When Camille leaves the bar and is speeding, she stops suddenly because she sees a girl standing in the road. The road sign says "St. Louis 90". This is a blaring error, as any town in the Missouri Boothell where Windgap is supposed to be is at least 150 miles from St. Louis. Cape Girardeau, Missouri, which stood in for New Carthage in Flynn's "Gone Girl", is 119 miles from St. Louis. See more »

Sharp Objects

Sharp Objects is a character driven miniseries created by Marti Noxon that depicts an emotionally challenged reporter whose current project or case has got her into revisiting her hometown and past that eventually spirals out series of dreadful events.

It is rich on technical aspects like stunning background score, metaphorical cinematography, fine art designing and perfect editing. The camera work is something to look forward to as it is shot beautifully with amazing visuals that seeks viewers' attention through it.

The three dimensional characters, eerie resonance with practicality and its tendency to go mild with a shock-and-awe policy are the high points of the series. It's finely detailed script and awareness of the surrounding offered to the characters which the makers uses it wisely, helps a lot for it to convey the message.

The adaptation by Gillian Flynn; who also wrote the original novel, is smart and explicit if not gripping and the primary reason it keeps the audience tangled in its web is the awareness of the characteristics of the characters and the palpable tone offered to it.

Jean-Marc Vallee; the director, is bang on his bucks on executing such a dark and fragile concept where he visits place with bold approach and unflinching argumentative revelations. The performance is utterly dependent on its protagonist Amy Adams that delivers the expected stellar performance and is supported decently by Patricia Clarkson and Chris Messina.


The episode is more disturbing than mysterious, especially since it leans towards depicting the dark side of the characters and also is intriguing through viewers perspective since the protagonist enfolds and discovers some new unseen identities whilst revisiting some supporting characters.
