anarresti's rating of the film The Nest

Unconfortable and paranoid. Short but impressive work on the body, with the menace of something terrible about to happen. Cronenberg is good exploring obssessions with and about the human body. He is good making it feel like flesh, like it is about to be felt, in the flesh, in reality. He gives us the human body, paradoxicaly, with a sense of reality, through its obsessive, often deviant, depictions.
