Sterile. Cerebral. Methodical. Those are the best words to describe Writer and Director Cory Finley's Thoroughbreds.
July 27, 2018
Cory Finley uses the clipped dialogue of film noir to heighten the sense of menace.

It's sharp. It's clever. It features a delightful final performance from Anton Yelchin...

Thank goodness, the film stays on track and Cooke's character, especially, keeps on confounding us.

Elegant, cruel and precise in its commentary on the turmoil inherent in being a teenage girl, the film works brilliantly up until the final act, its mordant, manicured savagery heightened by a primal score.

What a calling card for Cory Finley, and this could be the last outing for its leads before superstardom beckons.
April 6, 2018
No question, writer-director Cory Finley achieves his one clear goal, which is marking himself out as a name to watch.
April 6, 2018
A deliciously icy noir...
April 5, 2018
It is Bret Easton Ellis out of Patricia Highsmith, and there's also an interesting touch of Lady Macbeth's murderous MO.
April 4, 2018
This is a morbid and stylised comedy-drama which takes us to places where few other films about the growing pains of young Americans go near.

It's a killing movie in all senses. It sways like a cobra preparing to strike; and it is creepily, creepingly funny.

Remember the name Corey Finley. This fellow will go far.

Thoroughbreds is delivered generally in a prim, flat style that recalls the films of Hal Hartley and Whit Stillman...Finley is interested in the dark corners of psychology where malice and desire converge, and he generates a surprising amount of tension.

I would argue there's some humanity creeping around the edges of Thoroughbreds-and even a screwed up love story of sorts. You just have to remind yourself that all narrators aren't reliable.
March 10, 2018
Thoroughbreds is not for the faint of heart. It's a psychological thriller that explores what human nature is capable of when drained of all empathy and remorse, surviving instead on practised smiles, crocodile tears and self-serving impulses.
March 9, 2018
For those seeking a wickedly dark little confection, Thoroughbreds should prove a diverting watch; but those looking for anything deeper will find a lot left to be desired.
March 9, 2018
If you don't mind your movies nasty, brutish, and slight, you couldn't ask for a more delectable chocolate-covered razor blade.
March 9, 2018
Finley remains true to his vision, and it's a thrilling spectacle to behold.
March 9, 2018
Set in the opulent, WASP-y world of teen divas with killer instincts, Cory Finley's deliciously depraved satire skewers an empathy drain that he sees as sadly emblematic of modern life.
March 9, 2018
"Thoroughbreds" is a delightfully nasty piece of work, a sharp, biting, dark teen comic-drama with an attitude to rival "Heathers."
