There are a lot of things that can mess a person up whilst watching HBO's Sharp Objects.

If murdered teen girls aren't enough, perhaps the imagery of brutally pulled teeth will do the trick. Or the gratuitous sexual assault flashbacks. Even the spiral of self-destruction of protagonist Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) is too much to handle at times.

Yet it's none of these single details that have made me replay entire scenes repeatedly.

No. It's because Camille drives a rusty red 1980s Volvo 240 GL.
