Thoroughbreds
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:37:35 pm »
Written and directed by Cory Finley, Thoroughbreds stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Olivia Cooke, and the late Anton Yelchin. Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

Obnoxious overprivileged white girls?  Check.  Annoying music?  Check.  Half-assed commentary on the 1%ers made by 1%ers?  Check.  Olivia Cooke?  Check.  Overdone premise?  Check. 

I could go on.  I will not be seeing this.
goodbye!

Probably my favorite of the year so far out of the four films Iíve seen. Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke are superb and Anton Yelchin is amusing in one of his final roles. The film also has a suitably sharp script, impressively polished, detail oriented cinematography, and uniquely abrasive music meshing that of Keisha and There Will Be Blood together. Probably a B+.

That film isn't making it to my theater unfortunately.  I'll have to wait and catch it down the road.
