Jean-Marc Vallée Amerika Syarikat, 2018

Zachary T.'s rating of the film Sharp Objects

A fucking knockout, and an important snapshot of depression in 2018. I was nervous as a great admirer of the novel, but this really plays like a novel for the screen. Faithful, authentic and textured, with a sensitive eye for small, character-rich details. Unabashedly emotionally brutal. Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson are both on fire. Everyone and everything is exactly as I imagined it.
