"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

Magnificent little indie gem

"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

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 difficul... 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

"10.02.2014 A family man has nightmares, he dreams of a severe storm and other horrors.. He doesn't know if he is mentally ill, like his mother, or if it's an omen that something terrible will happen in the near future.. No matter, he prepares for the worst case to save his family.. I was surprised how great this movie is. It's a new discovery for My Movie Highlights of 2011 list."

"I began this movie and kept thinking, "I've seen this, I KNOW that I've seen this, but I just don't remember most of it!" So I kept on watching. It was about as slow as the first time(that obviously didn't leave much of an impression). The idea was up to par, but the pace was just way too slow. "

"5.11.2013 'Take Shelter' takes an interesting approach in a way that it's mostly about Michael Shannon's character and the possible disaster he sees visions about is mostly in the background almost all through. It's not about how Shannon goes around screaming to people about how a fucking storm is coming and they are all going to die (well if it were literally just that, it would have been awesome), but about how he starts doing stuff like building a bomb shelter and buying a shitload of canned"

"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"
