The Nest ★★★★

'Slow burn' is often used as a polite way to describe something as a little dull, especially with film, but when storytelling is done at a sedate pace letting the momentum build very gently to a satisfying conclusion - that's when it comes into its own as a technique. What's more is when the cast are so good and in sync with the story being told - however subtle and character based that may be - it is an actively appropriate method and in my essentially worthless opinion...utterly mesmerizing.
