I was a little underwhelmed by this, and I'm mystified by those who think highly of it. Michael Shannon is a fine actor--although there is almost no subtlety in terms of his creepy, psychotic vibe. Also, the film is too long, and better suited as an episode in the Twilight Zone, imo.

A very slow paced film that does keep you on the edge of your seat until the credits roll. Great acting, excellent mood development and a story that makes you think through out. But what really made this movie was the ending. Very well done, highly recommended!

Framing the struggles of mental illness as an ominous thriller turns out to be an intensely creative idea. It's an important film as it attempts to visualize the hardships of a mentally ill person - effectively portrayed by Shannon - as well as commenting on the modern perception from family and community, and the importance of healthcare for treatment. I don't believe the ending distracts from the rest of the film, and is open to wide interpretation.

In a way it was predictable, but its one of those few films that possibly knowing what will happen doesn't affect the enjoyment. Been wanting to see more of Michael Shannon since first seeing him in Boardwalk Empire and he does a tremendous job in this role.

My natural instinct is to put this down as merely a dose of heartland paranoia and "just-add-water"-spirituality, but my non-Redneck leanings aside, this film has the austere appeal of a late Johnny Cash song and needs to be appreciated as such. And any movie that concludes with a song by Nichols is fine by me. (Dickish review, I know, but I trust my fellow critickers are gonna cover all the important allegory-territory and the fact that Shannon is the fucking man, so forgive me my lazyness.)

As Take Shelter deliberately drags on, it becomes a deeply unsettling psychological thriller. As the ending drew near, I was convinced there wasn't any route this film would shy away from, and that slowly pulled me closer to the edge of my seat. Shannon does a great, criminally overlooked job. The ending seals the deal as something worth thought and debate.

Entranced me. Part of its ability to mesmerize comes from the amazing Shannon and Chastain but everything about the film is superb, really. The nightmare sequences are haunting. One can believe that they take such a strong hold on Curtis, and his (possible) descent into madness is adeptly depicted. 'Take Shelter' joins the ranks of two other transcendental domestic dramas, 'A Separation' and 'The Tree of Life', completing a trifecta of 2011-masterpieces.

It's a pretty slow-moving movie, but it's very good at building tension. It's pretty rare to see a movie where the ending was approaching, and I legitimately didn't know what was about to happen.

An undoubted work of genius. Tense, frightening, beautiful & touching, "Take Shelter" is indeed a rare concoction; mixing family drama, psychological exploration & possibly even a whisper of sci-fi!? The characters are brilliantly written, their relationships honest & real, with Shannon's performance absolutely staggering! The score is great too & there are several monumental scenes in this masterpiece from Nichols, but it was the epic final moments gave me goosebumps! Must see it again soon.

I can't remember the last time I saw a film wherein the escalating dread was so palpable, so unbearable. It's a slow movie, yet almost inconceivably gripping; it's intense, eerie, and directed and scored perfectly.

Whether this movie was about the dreams/apocalyptic storm on the way or a family dealing with mental illness and the willingness to cope and love, it still shined in my opinion. The acting and script were spot on. I am just frustrated that so many hate the ending or misinterpret it.

I found myself getting impatient with this film and felt that it could of done with being about 30 minutes shorter - if you're going to do a movie that is slow paced, fine, just try not to drag it out too much. Acting was good and I really liked the score.

Works as both a character study of an everyday man dealing with all kinds of familiar problems and as a super tense, excellently paced thriller. The acting is great all-around, and the imagery presented throughout the film is frightening and memorable.

A atmosfera de mistério que vai acompanhando o desenrolar da história não funciona muito bem, e o filme vai evoluindo num ritmo entediante, situação reforçada pelos seus personagens desinteressantes. Existem algumas sequências que sobressaem, especialmente os sonhos e a sequência final, visualmente e simbolicamente belíssima. No todo, não foi um filme que me cativou, apesar de lhe conseguir reconhecer algumas características interessantes.

Wonderfully gripping until its last five minutes. The cheapness of the ending undermines such effective emotions that have been established up to that point. From the dream sequences to simple conversations, there is some incredible effort in image, sound, and performance on display here, especially regarding Shannon and Chastain. Once again, the conclusion resembles a radical tonal shift that manages to say two things: "Fuck this guy's caring family" and "Fuck you, viewer."

Utterly compelling. It tiptoes beautifully between being a spine-chilling psychological horror film, an emotionally intense look in to mental illness and how it can isolate you from those around you, and a look at the effort and love it can take for a family to keep together when there are so many needs to balance and keep met. The ending is ambiguous and stunning.

Not having any experience with schizophrenia, I thought this was a pretty realistic depiction of it. Michael Shannon was fantastic, so was Jessica Chastain. It had great cinematography. My only complaint is the movie I thought moved a little slow. My problem with the ending is that it's either logical (schizophrenia) or ridiculous (psychic?), so it's pretty obvious to me which one to go with. But I guess that wasn't the point of the ending.

This film was an arduous experience, I didn't find the midwestern setting or the increasingly metaphorical difficulties facing Shannon's Curtis compelling enough to warrant the time I invested in this film. That isn't to say that the film is poorly executed, or that the performances are bad, because the performances are quite good and I think the film said exactly what it wanted to say, I just didn't care to hear it.
