Thoroughbreds ★★★★

A queasily delightful story about two horrible girls. One is incapable of feeling anything for other people and the other is literally incapable of feeling anything at all, and together they push towards an inevitably horrific outcome. I thought this was terrific when I saw it in theaters but in this second viewing it feels even more profoundly uncompromising than ever. It’s also now an important piece of history; an early dream pairing of two stars still on the rise: Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke turn in persona-defining performances, and Anton Yelchin delivers a heart-breaking swan song.
