"What had looked like a meandering, anecdotal story turns out to be a carefully constructed narrative machine, one that dispenses a brilliantly nasty series of surprises. Mr. Silva’s accomplishment is not just in pulling off a jarring plot twist, but in handling a change of tone that turns the movie — and the audience’s assumptions about it — upside down."

AO Scott, NY Times

"[a] loosely constructed...look at navel-gazing hipsters....'Nasty Baby' rights itself intriguingly when Silva pushes his characters into unknown territory and lifestyle is imposed upon by life."
