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.

"Meh' A slow-paced movie, more a drama about mental illness than anything. It keeps you hoping for more but never quite gets there. Interesting but not really fulfilling. Good for maybe a 1-time watch.

Pretty lethargic, yet oddly enjoyable.

I thought the movie was entertaining throughout, though a tiny bit slow.
