The Nest

The Nest

★★★★

a clinical & riveting deconstruction of the nuclear family and the self-aggrandizing nature of chasing more than just stability. it’s steeped in a sinister and somber atmosphere that Coon & Law revel in with all of their foreboding & painstaking stares. this is Durkin at his most highly poised and an elegant yet ferocious drama that burrows deep into the mind and lingers. don’t make us wait another nine years for your next one, Durkin!

The disintegration of a marriage under the hollowness of the husband, shot like a slow burn horror movie with amazing performances from Jude Law and Carrie Coon. Yeah, I love it.

The Nest

The Nest

★★★★

Utterly masterful performances from Jude Law and Carrie Coon, lensed with such sophistication. Also loved how the 1980s soundtrack is so vibrant, so present - yet it always feels like you’re listening to it underwater, the thoughts and feelings of this family so clinical and distanced for anything in any way euphoric. Very chic! Very intimidating!
