Possibly the most overlooked film of 2011. Jeff Nichols proves that his first film was no fluke, guy is legit and he has a great muse in Michael Shannon who is once again fantastic. Jessica Chastain was perfectly cast as well. The pacing was great and the ending was solid.

Intense and unpredictable. There is so much in this film about trust, love and dealing with mental instability. Fantastic, believable performances from both leads.

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.

Michael Shannon was robbed of a Best Actor nomination. Adding to that, Jessica Chastain WAS nominated, but for the wrong movie this year! Both Shannon & Chastain were fantastic here. This is a movie that builds slowly but very tense throughout until that controversial ending. I love the well-rounded character built for Shannon in that he does everything he can to deal with his visions and dreams. Seeing the Q&A and meeting Chastain after the film at TIFF was a lovely cherry on top. Amazing film!

Powerful acting by Shannon. Excellent story and very well done overall. Curtis is the kind of character who may seem slightly obnoxious in his mystery, but he's a believer.

Take Shelter shows us a man who is finally becoming unhinged trying to deal with the social life in a modern capitalistic society, and the schizophrenic realities inherent in it. Michael Shannon is amazing as the unwitting protagonist. I had problems relating to the shelter building plot device, but that's probably due to me being from somewhere where major storms can't happen.

The best American film of the year. "Take Shelter" is a lot deeper than it initially appears although the feeling of anxiety and unease is constant throughout, helped along by Shannon's incredible and subtle performance. It becomes so engaging and emotional at times, even to the point where it becomes hard to watch (in a good way) that I became too enveloped in what was going on and didn't read into the actual message, which will stick with you long after the end credits.

It shouldn't really be 2 hours long. The film is too long and boring most of the times and I'm really not happy to had been dragged to this flick with the expectation of being a trhilling apocalyptic story.

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.

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.

Shotgun Stories wasn't all that, but it did show some promise. And here Nichols delivers on that. The film looks great, has a nice score, good editing. And then you also have the perfect role for Michael Shannon (just a joke he isn't among the Academy Award nominees) who's ably supported by an equally impressive Chastain. It might be a little too long and fizzles a bit, but it is really a very impressive film. Excellent stuff.
