    Dreadful movie. Total waste of money. The good reviews are from family and friends. Felt sorry for the horse.
  • Two of Best Performaces All Year

    By williamhenry1976
    People are either going to love this movie or hate it. It is the kind of film that leaves little room for middle ground opinions. I loved it. Incredibly smart storytelling told at an unflinching and delibrate pace. Coon and Law both deserve Academy Award nominations as their work as a married couple falling apart is outstanding. It's beautifully shot as well. Again, some people won't get it, but I thought it was absolutely stunning.

  • A disappointment

    By Aromapreneur
    This was one of the slowest moving movies I have ever seen. A great excuse to spend millions. Sorry to report.

    I tunes still shoveling the same stink. I'm not shocked. The minds of the majority of your customers are at best unconscious at the other end infants. I suppose y’all dont give a dirty rag after ya crunch the numbers. Thanks again for the innovation being a cut above the rest and all that.
  • Brilliant acting and visually stunning

    The film was beautiful—amazing performances from all actors involved.
  • Skip this one

    By BigOneXX
    I was intrigued by the look and feel of this movie only to be severely disappointed. The characters were so-so, acting was ok, the story had no point at all and the ending was the worst in history of movie making. A wasted two hours and $5.

    Wish Hollywood made more movies like this, just a smart story with two of the best actors around!
  • Terrible

    By mylyfemyrulz
    I hated this movie. When i watched the preview it looked sorta like it might be like sam mendes’ revolutionary road. I loved that movie so mucu and wanted to give this a chance. The wife character was the saving grace of this movie and was the ONLY reason i finished the movie. Save your money on this one.
  • Best film of 2020 (so far)

    By Bank of America_Knoxville
    As of late November 2020, “The Nest,” is easily the front-runner for the best film of the year, (though I’m sure there will be lots of great movies in next few months as studios like to release their best stuff every November & December as the Oscars — and other awards ceremonies — are held in in January/February). Because of the pandemic, countless films slated for premiering sometime this past year have been indefinitely delayed — not just for box office reasons — but for Awards recognition purposes. The Academy has many rules that don’t make sense or have any sort of logic, but the rule that’s relevant to 2020’s lack of releases compared to every other year dating back over 100 years is this one: In order for a film to qualify for being nominate for any award by the Academy, the movie must have been in theaters for 3+ weeks and not put on any streaming/VOD platforms until after a theatrical run, (and there’s even more nonsense about specific theaters in certain cities MUST have shown the film for at least a few weeks!). MY POINT BEING THE FOLLOWING: I don’t know if “The Nest” was screened in enough theaters, or anywhere for that matter, to qualify for Academy Award nominations...*but if there’s one film I’ve seen all year that deserves such recognition, it’s “The Nest.”* This is NOT Oscar-bait. This is legitimately impeccable filmmaking on every level. From Jude Law & Carrie Coon giving their best performances of their respective careers to the cinematography, editing, screenwriting, and directing — it’s the rarest of Hollywood films, that lightning in a bottle. There is no bombastic marketing campaign, no misleading trailers that try to draw viewers in by making it look like a different genre or style than it really is; the people who made it know it’s special & I can only hope that the mainstream audiences across the world are aware this film exists and that they give it a chance. Because from the opening minutes to the very final shot before the credits roll, “The Nest,” sinks its hooks into your mind in ways that remind me of the first time I watched movies like, “Whiplash,” and, “Michael Clayton.” Do yourself a favor and watch this one instead of some unoriginal sequel or comic book reboot nonsense. Trust me.
