"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

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

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

Take Shelter is further proof that independent motion pictures are one of the most reliable sources of excellence in today's unstable cinematic climate. Rather than an in-your-face thriller reliant on big special effects, Take Shelter is a quietly involving, harrowing drama with a lot on its mind. The movie medit... read more

"5.3. An average man starts to get initial symptoms of an apparent mental illness in this another pretty good and controlled film from promising American director Jeff Nichols. "

"AKA Michael Shannon doing the schizo once again. In this one he is a family man, stolid husband and lovely father of a deaf daughter, who becomes more and more obsessed with tornados and the forces of nature attacking him and his beloved ones, and this leads to a state of absolute paranoia and nightmares and this leads to him losing job and friends and becoming more and more paranoid, and this leads to, well... a real tornado in the end. (!) The photography is excellent, and so are the actors, b"

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 appear... homage to Hitchcock? ahahahah... It is true that, at times, the action reminds Night Shyamalan cinema, but the worst (The Village, Lady in the Water...); particularly, reminded me sequences of "Kairo" ("Pulse"), of another one actual "genius", Kiyoshi Kurosawa, especially the end.

And its end, how could it be otherwise, opts for premonition and left me more empty than the beach that se” read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I wasn’t disappointed and I’m glad I knew very little about it beforehand which is the best way to watch any movie in my opinion. Basically, it is a heartbreaking drama and an nail-biting thriller at the same time and, even though not much really happen during the whole thing, it was quite spellbinding to watch. Indeed, in the contrary to most of the US thrillers which go for the cheap thrills without much consistency, here, the story and the characters evolved organically which was a really refreshing approach. It was the first movie directed by Jeff Nichols that I have seen so far and he seems to be one of the most interesting American directors at work nowadays and I will definitely check his” read more

"OmU - English with German subtitles Take shelter had a great story and great transitions between the scenes, there was more than one match cut, which is always a delicacy for my eyes. Unfortunately I wasn't satisfied by the movie's end."

Great Movie

“You know those movies that from the beginning to the end convey a stifling atmosphere?

Well, that was the feeling I had when I watched this movie, I even change my opinion about the protagonist (Michael Shannon) who is an actor that I never sympathized much in films (apart from the series Boardwalk Empire).

Anyway worth watching, the ending was exactly what I imagined.” read more

Prepare for Goosebumps!

“You can consider everything here a spoiler. Most isn´t but if you read this before you watch it you´ll may regret it. You are advised.

Now the review:

Storytelling is an art that shouldn't be forgotten, it's more than just scripting some dialogue and action shots. A movie like this is full of tricks but they all feel great and work better and that's really difficult. The secret is in the really slow tension building and the magnificent acting.

You can watch this movie as a believer, a disbeliever or a kid. The first will be watching a fantasy prophecy complex movie, the second will be watching a bigger than life psychodrama, the last one will be just enjoying everything that happens in the screen as it comes. Everyone will feel great in the end: goosebumps ” read more
