  • Nasty Baby won't be for everybody, but offers plenty to think about for those willing to be swept along.

    May 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Although occasionally trying and failing to balance the array of stories it aims to tell, Nasty Baby's performances and conclusion provide a method to the madness as it reminds us of the constant state of the human condition.

    May 9, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • There are layers to this social satire, and the insidious effect of central character Freddy's brazen narcissism unexpectedly draws you in to observe more complex matters of class division, prejudice, and homophobia.

    March 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There are moments in Nasty Baby when the light streaming through a window is just too beautiful. And that is what urban life is about.

    August 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • [Nasty Baby] is designed to pull you out of your comfort zone, and it does. But its often half-baked ideas mean it's more repulsive than thought-provoking.

    August 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A certain deadpan lightheartedness, as well as the pleasure of watching pretty people filmed in pretty places, sweeps us into the film. So what occurs in the final half hour comes as even more of a shock than it otherwise might.
