'Thoroughbreds' is smart, amoral comedy en route to a cult following

Colin Covert, Star Tribune (Minneapolis) on

Finley's female leads, in contrast, are larger than life, vibrant with energy, and, like sharks, always moving forward. As is the film. "Thoroughbreds" shows how to create a polished noir gem with a small cast, a handful of beautifully decorated sets, gliding, voyeuristic steadicam work and superb sound design. I don't think the scraping blades of unseen kitchen knives has ever been so spine-chilling. And there aren't enough words of praise for Erik Friedlander's unearthly musical score.

Something wicked your way comes, and it really should not be missed.


4 stars

Rating: R for disturbing behavior, bloody images, language, sexual references and some drug content.
