It’s been an agonizing nine-year wait for writer-director Sean Durkin to follow up his outstanding 2011 debut Martha Marcy May Marlene, but he’s finally gotten the finger out and delivered a second feature. And boy, has he delivered! Returning to the UK, where he was raised as a child and where he directed the 2013 Channel 4 mini-series Southcliffe, Durkin has given us a doom-laden rejoinder to the current rose-tinted nostalgia for that most awful of decades, the 1980s. The Nest is a moody family drama that plays like The Omen with Thatcher swapped in for Satan....

There are films about important subjects, films that bring characters to life, and films that are challenging for the viewer - Julia Kots’ debut full-length film, Inez & Doug & Kira is all three.  It features great acting performances, superb character development, and enough mystery to keep viewers glued to each scene.  The New Jersey Film Festival offers a virtual screening of the film on October 16. It will be available for 24 hours.... READ ON

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rutgers University will not have any events take place on the New Brunswick campus this Fall.  This led the New Jersey Film Festival, which is celebrating its 39th anniversary this year, to be presented virtually.  The festival runs now through October 25, 2020 and will present the New Jersey or Area Premiere (Middlesex County) for over 40 films. All the films will be available on VOD (Video On Demand) for 24 hours on their show date. There will also be special Filmmaker Introductions and Q+A Sessions available for many of the films.  Here’s a look at the films for October.... READ ON
