Law and Coon aren't the only reason to see Durkin's marital nightmare of a movie, but they are the main reason to see it

There's beauty in the small moments of this downbeat and dark family drama.

September 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As devastating as The Nest often is, the sheer beauty of individual moments is still elating.

September 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It looks like a horror movie, swims like a horror movie, and quacks like a horror movie, but it isn't a horror movie. So then what the hell is it?

September 18, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Even if you're not entirely sold by the idea of an Antonioni-esque alienation drama shot as if it were I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (and why the hell wouldn't you be?!), The Nest is well worth seeing just for its two central performances.
