"It's hard to explain, because it's not just a dream. It's a feeling."

Forget about Martha Marcy May Marlene and its impossible-to-remember title. If you're interested in watching a 2011 film that delves into the most obscure depths of a character's ostensibly paranoid mind and goes further than just TOUCHING on the difficulties experienced by someone who may or may not be losing hi... read more

Take Shelter (2011)

In general, movies of fantasy genre try to make believable a incredible situation. With "Take Shelter" is exactly the opposite.

Nichols, his young director, wants to play too many sticks in a ridiculous grandstanding exercise as hollow as his tornadoes. The film is halfway around without reaching any definition without understanding their proposals. The birds that a... read more

My Movie Diary 2017 (154 movies items)

" 11 January. Curtis suffers from a certain schizophrenia--he sees elaborate storms in daylight and have unexplained nightmares, and his mental disorder is destroying his family and welfare.  Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain give extraordinary performances in this intelligent, bewildering story written and directed by Jeff Nichols who, along with 2016's sci-fi Midnight Special seem to be saying, "move over M.Night Shyamalan." If only it wasn't a bit slow, it could've"

"The Gunman kinda ruined the beginning of this for me because I was just really bored and tired after that. Fortunately this film was good and interesting enough to reel me back in. "
