Dark and funny film is decent but feels incomplete
I liked Thoroughbreds a lot, but felt it was much too vague on certain topics and characters. It is just over 90 minutes and I didn't feel like it was enough. I loved the idea, but just thought the writing wasn't where it needed to be. It got predictable as it went on. It is funny, but not laugh out loud and definitely not throughout. I don't think it is really a comedy. All of the characters were played well. It is dark, but still a fairly mild R. There is a lot of language, though. The violence is mostly off screen, but characters are seen covered in blood. There are references to a horse being killed. Drugs are discussed more than they are used. There is teen smoking and drinking. Mature teens should be okay if they can handle darker subject matter. I was really looking forward to this film, and it's not bad, but it needed more.
