For all those studying to become Marriage and Family Therapists, here's a sampling of ugliness and familial torture with insights into behavioral symptoms, but also economic (including overcrowded housing), patriarchy, misogyny, addiction, resentment, child neglect, violence and a unity of fear-based phobias. Sounds fun? Well, it isn't. However, gaiety isn't the only target of films. Early Bela Tarr has created a hellish Hungarian apartment and shoots most of his scenes with the cramped, bound, prison-like atmosphere in which nothing can flourish without malignancy squeezing through the widening cracks. Akin to the contemporaneous British directors Ken Loach, Alan Clarke during the Thatcher regime, and even earlier "Kitchen Sink" dramas of a slightly earlier period, Family Nest questions even the term Love, whatever that means. A vitriolic, mean-spirited, condemning good film.
