Take Shelter

Take Shelter

Directed by Jeff Nichols

A man plagued by terrifying apocalyptic visions struggles to determine if they’re real or if he’s losing his mind. Either way, Curtis (Michael Shannon) is in trouble, and so he doesn’t tell his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) about his nightmares, and instead seeks answers in psychology books, while obsessively building a shelter, just in case. Jeff Nichols (MIDNIGHT SPECIAL) broke out with this acclaimed portrait of a man on the brink of disaster that’s instantly relatable to all of us who live in fear of the very real apocalyptic scenarios on Earth’s horizon.

A man plagued by terrifying apocalyptic visions struggles to determine if they’re real.

Cast: Kathy Baker, Jessica Chastain, Katy Mixon, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham

I loved this. Yes, it is a slow burn, so if you need action every second or every few minutes, this isn't for you. But it does build the suspense. And the cast is phenomenal.

Very slow paced movie, but I loved it. Michael Shannon is a rockstar. Jeff Nichols does not disappoint.

Great themes, just a little too slow and ambiguous for my taste. 3.5/5
