  2. valdez 2032's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Cold and detached, like the main characters. Makes the most of its stage origins and is a superior film on the strength of the two main characters

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Cooke and Taylor-Joy are both great in this tale of disaffection that boasts a strong screenplay and a magnificent use of sound. Being hailed by some as this generation's 'Heathers' it trumps that film by leaving aside the black comedy and investing in the ennui of teenage restlessness and discontent.

  4. Dav I.D.'s rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    The first and second acts of Thoroughbreds are built with surgical precision: cold, slick, and exact. Unfortunately, the plot grinds to a halt in the third act...its like they took the keys out of the car and just decided to push the damn thing the rest of the way. By the time we get there, its not as interesting anymore. Still: the camerawork is confident, the musical score is fitting, and the performances spot-on.

  5. Dana Henson's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    This felt like the most violent film I've seen in a long time but it shows very little. Through implication and sound design, Finley paints disturbing images in your mind that will likely not go away for a very long time. The lead performances from Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy are fantastic. They strike the perfect balance of being disarmingly funny but frighteningly cold.

  6. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Two teenage girls orchestrating the murder of a douche stepdad? That's a solid dark comedy, right there.

  7. Loz Loory's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    A strange, claustrophobic movie. So glad Anton Yelchin was there to break up the stilted, awkwardly styiized dialogue of the two leads. The women seemed directed to act like models in an Anthropologie photo shoot. The tone was helped greatly by the dramatic, dissonant musical score. At the end, the movie fizzled out, somehow strangely afraid of showing anything of great import, and thus signifying not much at all.

  8. cineholic's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    7.5/10. A weird cross between Heathers and Equus, THOROUGHBREDS is pitch perfect black satire--for the first hour. The film falters in its finale, working up to a murder plot, whose scheming is more interesting than its execution.

  9. Tom Rubendall's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    This is one intense film that feels like John Waters meets Harmony Korrine by way of Todd Haynes. The darkness of this film is complemented by the vibrant set pieces and the unsettling music fits this film like a glove as these two girls try and find themselves in a society that doesn't care about them and doesn't even really know itself. Truly a film for our times and featuring two extraordinary young talents.

  11. Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Part dark comedy, part thriller. Extremely well made. Some great long takes, and the score smacked of Jonny Greenwood's work on Phantom Thread. The cast is so great.

  12. Mcpeer's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Leaves almost zero lasting impression.

  13. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    I guess a disaffected youth is better by far than a wise and productive old age.

  14. HKFanatic's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    If you spent your teenage years feeling disaffected and alone (and maybe reading too much Bret Easton Ellis), but are able to look back at that time with a level of distance and irony as an adult, "Thoroughbreds" is a film that totally gets you. Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel") and Anton Yelchin steal their every scene, and writer/director Cory Finley displays a strong filmic sensibility despite a background in theater.

  15. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Direction, cinematography, performances, and music — it’s all there, but as enjoyable as Taylor-Joy and Cooke are in this dark comedy, it also still feels slightly cosmetic.

  16. Max Swanson's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Two young girls revive their friendship when they discover they're both heartless, morally bankrupt and sociopathic souls.

  17. Joao Domingues's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    LFF || In the jungle the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight ... wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh

  18. Edgarreviews's rating of the film Thoroughbreds

    Unpredictable narrative, sharp dialogue, unusual score and smart performances make a thorough-bred-ly entertaining watch
