Brothers' Nest is the latest outing from the sibling pair behind the seminal Aussie comedy Kenny, Clayton and Shane Jacobson. The only similarity it has with the delightful and jovial merchant of toilet humour is that this deeply dark film also clings to you like an inescapable stench. The rare splashes of comedy in this desperate tragedy are suffocated by the arresting desperation and apathy of the central characters.

Though brimming with pitch-black comedy, "Brothers' Nest" actually plays like more of an absurdist tragedy as it pits good brother against good-brother-gone-bad in a cautionary tale of longing and desperation that packs a surprisingly affecting punch.

The Jacobsons have given us another comedy classic, far stranger than the last.

Brothers' Nest is reasonably satisfying as a film about the weird passions of family. It has a certain integrity as that, even if it's not a thigh-slapper.

All of it is razor-sharp, darkly funny, and tense.

This is a comedy that's blacker than pitch, and tethered enough to unexaggerated human behavior that it can really commit to the consequences of its characters' colossal stupidity.

...if you're open to its acidic charms, Brothers' Nest is one for the books.
