"Take Shelter" is effective both as an intensely atmospheric, paranoid thriller and as a nuanced allegory about family bonds tested in the face of social distress. The film is a testament to Nichols' ability to masterfully build and maintain tension though a deceptively low-key approach as well as to Shannon's brilliant acting showcase (Chastain was fabulous as well, that goes without saying by now). Overall, an impressive –if a little slow-moving– feat, one of the best of 2011.

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.

a good psychological drama; the suspense of mental disturbance versus sense of reality is really palpable.. the end could be better

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.

The acting is exceptionally good, has some nice cinematography and I think it shows very well how it would be like to be schizophrenic. Has a few creepy moments (I'm a wuss) and the ending is perfect

Moves exactly as expected for two hours without any relevant social or metaphorical concerns. The trick is that its stupid little horror idea is filmed like an indie drama, you see.

It's a bit too up-front with its symbolism, but beautifully crafted all the same. It's telling that a film which pairs its economic troubles with psychotic episodes comes across as relatively muted for an American working-class drama these days. I'd like to see the rise of an American Neo(sur)realism.

An absolutely phenomenal film. Michael Shannon gives an incredible performance as a man who might be losing his mind, and is terrified by the thought of that. He's backed up wonderfully by Chastain as his almost unbelievably supportive wife. The movie builds the tension continuously throughout, leading to an extremely appropriate finale. A true masterpiece.

When it doesn't force the proceedings, it's an ominous, unsettling pic that explores the tensions between self-certainty and faith in others — a potent theme that its final scene ultimately reduces to a bad joke.

I like Take Shelter because I'm an American and this movie is clearly about American apprehension and paranoia, or, specifically, the anxiety of becoming a father and starting a family in the modern-age, and the feeling you get from Jeff Nichols' story is a feeling that's very strong and very real, for many families and many people. An exciting work, because Jeff Nichols made this when he was only 32 years old, and hopefully has a promising future ahead of him.

While the main character does seem to redeem himself by the end, it was a long and tedious path to watch him get there. The director took too many opportunities to just let the camera sit there and stretched out inconsequential moments to become boring. It was somewhat interesting to watch this man question his sanity, and take steps to addressing it. Otherwise, this is not a very remarkable story. I really liked the role of he wife though.

The film is driven by psychological ambiguity which creates an unsettling and intense atmosphere. Cinematography wise the American midwest is portrayed in a beautiful way. The acting is - as described in almost al other reviews - superb, just watch the 'mental breakdown' scene and you will be amazed. The only downside is they dragged it a bit too long near the ending.

This is an overlong, rather dull psychological mystery with sci-fi overtones and it proves that there really isn't such a fine line between vague and incoherent. Despite the studied restraint the ending is nevertheless overdetermined and inevitable. Michael Shannon tries hard, I guess, but his part serves the premise, not the other way around.
