'The Nest' examines disintegration of a marriage.
January 5, 2021
Thanks to career-best performances from Law and Coon and Sean Durkin's excellent direction, The Nest is is something truly special.

None of these characters are villains, but their aspirations feel so empty.
December 25, 2020
the dramatic tension is so finely wrought and expertly sustained that it's hard to begrudge Durkin's choice to undermine expectations while also delivering a film with a clear moral about the tragedy of never being satisfied

The deconstruction of the american dream. [Full review in spanish].
December 11, 2020
Durkin's great strength is in bringing to light the familiar in his heroes' conflicts, without animating them with artificial cinematic drama. [Full review in Spanish]

It's a more intimate take on Wall Street's 1987 dictum that greed is good.
December 7, 2020
Although it's a domestic drama with a touch of thriller, The Nest sure as hell feels like a horror movie.
December 5, 2020
["The Nest"] stars Jude Law and Carrie Coon as a married couple whose reverie is shattered by the husband's duplicity.
December 3, 2020
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.
December 3, 2020
THE NEST is an unforgettable cinematic experience and perhaps the best performance of Jude Law's career.
November 29, 2020
... despite all the strong performances and stellar directing, "The Nest" is just a slog to watch.
November 28, 2020
As well constructed as Durkin's space and tone is - the flat, desaturated, and sunless locales conveying the increasing bleakness of the characters' moods - the most engaging aspect of the film are the lead performances.
November 27, 2020
[Jude] Law and [Carrie] Coon give absolutely impressive and realistic performances as people who have to deal with the false public image they put forth to the world versus the harsh reality of who they truly are.
November 27, 2020
There was a disparity between expectations and delivery as vast as the Atlantic Ocean with "The Nest."
November 25, 2020
Studies in free-floating anxiety are rarely as well done as the one in The Nest, a sort of haunted-house movie in which, despite hints to the contrary, the house is probably just fine.
November 25, 2020
Can love beat vanity and power?
November 23, 2020
I admire Durkin's talent and the film boast terrific performances from its leads, but overall it's not a pleasant film to watch. Shot like a horror thriller, there's a sense of dread throughout, which doesn't always work in its favor.
November 21, 2020
Everything is top-notch in this film, which maybe contributes to the sense that The Nest is just a little too perfectly executed somehow.
November 20, 2020
...less than fully satisfying, and its characters considerably less than likable. But it confirms Durkin as an interesting filmmaker, who gets committed work out of good actors.
