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.

One of the most unsettling films I've ever seen, Shannon's performance here was fantastic.

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.

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.

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.

Stylistically cliche, but rates at least a 90 for the marvelous script that crosses the line on so many 2010 topics: climate change, terrorism and its effects on the paranoid US political culture, mental illness, America's shitty healthcare system wholly inadequate for families with disabilities, economic impossibilities for the middle class, etc.

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.

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.

It doesn't really make a point. I still enjoyed it 'cause 1) I hoped it would and 2) I like looking at Michael Shannon's face.

I have now seen all 3 of Nichols' films to date, and my verdict is that he is a brilliant director who sucks at endings.

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.

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.
