One to look out for …

Fans of mindlessly smashing things to pieces with blunt instruments will go crazy for Kid-Thing, the new one from Sundance faves the Zellner Brothers. Newcomer Sydney Aguirre (and I mean new, check out her IMDb profile photo) is wholly terrifying as 10-year-old nihilist Annie, who spends the bulk of the film’s runtime finding as many ways as possible to inflict pain, suffering or simply confusion on those around her, until the discovery of a mysterious pit in the woods focuses her persecution on a single, seemingly helpless victim. UK distribution is still up for grabs.
