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.

Was...ok. Michael Shannon killed it and I enjoyed the dynamic between his character and Jessica Chastain's. It was kind of endearing. This is a family drama with some bullshit re shoot scene thrown in at the end to appease a studio I'm assuming. Kind of made the entire movie not worth it. The acting was fantastic, I've been shamabagged
Really good movie, kept my attention, lot to be said for a discerning nature.
Solid, worth the watch.
very suspenseful. great acting
I was very captivated by this movie. I thought the portrayal of mental illness in this movie was very believable and good. It’s not just “he’s crazy! He’s gonna kill his whole family!” trope again. I thought the very ending of the movie was kind of a letdown and stupid, negating the whole point of the film, so that’s why I only give it a 4 instead of a 5 out of 5. The rest of it was awesome. I was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised by this.
