  • Not a lot of storytellers working in movies today take the time to lay the emotional foundation of each character. Durkin does, and when his characters crack, the destruction feels all the more pronounced.

  • It's pure pleasure to watch a film like The Nest, which is scary for all the right reasons and leaves you feeling unsettled at the end.

  • Durkin builds his discerning observations on a dramatic foundation that's no less unchallenged, and no less rickety, than the social fictions on which it depends.

  • Even after it's over, "The Nest" continues to build.

    November 20, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The film never overstates itself as it reaches a memorable conclusion.
