Let's be honest: The best way to watch a psychological mystery flick is to go into it knowing nothing about it. Some of my best movie-watching experiences have come from being out of the loop—no trailers, no spoilers, nada. That tone shift halfway through Parasite? Wow! The twist in Barbarian? Can't be beat!
Of course, in the digital age, it's nearly impossible to avoid spoilers. When a new title premieres, you can't even open Twitter without a twist being thrown right before your eyes. (And of course, reading this review might feel contradictory to my point.)
But, don't worry because I'm not here to ruin Sharper for you. The new Apple TV+ film is one that is best enjoyed as a surprise. It feels like Catch Me If You Can meets Memento, and it's possibly the con artist movie to beat all other con artist movies. So, keep reading for my full, *spoiler-free* review.
