The Nest (David Cronenberg, 2013)


The Nest is a short clip about a woman with a mix of acarophobia (a pathological belief that one’s skin is infested with insects) and “body integrity identity disorder” – she wanted to get rid of one of her breasts, because it became a nest for insects.

This doesn’t even seem like a movie at all. It’s just a piece of raw video material, without beginning or end, with no development whatsoever, just a senseless and not very interesting video clip. I have no idea why anybody would claim this is a product of cinema. It’s not. I mean, it’s a little bit curious. But, more than that, it’s disappointing. Sadly.
