Critic Reviews for The Nest
What makes Durkin's vision so powerfully unsettling is its ease with ambiguity, its ability to make cruelty and tenderness seem like flip sides of the same human coin.
You could easily spend the next decade trying to decode its themes.February 21, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
As a statement on a decade of consumerism, The Nest doesn't have anything particularly new to say, but as a fable of familial dysfunction, it's resonant and, yes, frightening, with nary a ghost in sight.
As he proved with 'Martha Marcy May Marlene', Durkin is a master of tone, and 'The Nest' is another finely calibrated mood piece.February 21, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
The payoff for this expert exercise in tonal control may not be sufficiently satisfying, yet it feels in keeping with a story in which there's nothing outwardly wrong with this family - but something's clearly not right.
It's more adult, absorbing and carefully made than most current releases, and the central subject -- how a preoccupation with status or material success can lead to disaster -- may well feel uncomfortably close to home.February 3, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for The Nest
Jan 14, 2021Law and Coon give two brilliant performances (Law is initially flashier but you can see that he's barely concealing his anguish, while Coon gets to slowly build to her eventual breakdown) and I really like the horror aesthetic being used for this kind of drama.Alec B Super Reviewer
