HBO’s limited series “Sharp Objects” proves to be a powerful adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel from the jump. Creator Mari Noxon and director Jean-Marc Vallée craft a sweaty, oppressive, and bloody look at small town life in Middle America. Amy Adams’ portrayal of journalist Camille Preaker returning to Wind Gap to cover a young girl’s murder is heartbreaking and bleak, but undeniably captivating to watch as she wrestles demons who aren’t remotely tackled, only mildly concussed.
