Thoroughbreds ★★★★

Went in cold knowing nothing and glad for it. If Sofia Coppola were to make a version of "Diabolique," it might feel something like this. Cooke and Taylor-Joy are impeccably cast (especially the latter, who I'm certain is going to be a major acting force soon), the atmospherics are immediately ice-veined, and the turns of the narrative dark in ways that you neither entirely expect nor feel are out of nowhere. Part of that has to do with one character's utterly disarming approach to what happens. To say which one ... well, that would be applying the technique, wouldn't it?
