Summary: If anyone hasn't seen Take Shelter, I sincerely recommend you do, brilliant movie in every way. Interesting and engaging storyline, well scripted, well acted (particularly Shannon) and a final scene that keeps you thinking after the movie.
Summary: Nichols’ quietly unsettling piece boasts an absolutely showcase performance by Shannon, ideally cast as a man who starts thinking a great disaster is on its way. Is he right or is it the slow descent of a man into madness? Nichols admirably keeps the ambivalence going throughout and has a telling eye for detail that makes this consistently absorbing.
Summary: This is why I watch movies. Every now and then a gem turns up that blows me away. Take Shelter is that gem. Forget your overblown CGI blockbusters, this is the real deal. Everything about this film oozes quality. From the wonderful acting, to the brilliant story. Stunning cinematography, mesmerising soundtrack and the awesome finale. Rent and enjoy.
Summary: I know the donnie darkoish plot is'nt to everones taste but i found it pretty engrossing and the portrails by michael shannon and jessica chastain of a husband and wife who's seemingly well adjusted life comes tumberling down very well acted.
Excerpt: This movie was okay, but I wouldn't call it "the best movie in a decade" or anything. I found it to be boring, to be honest. Good storyline but it drags in several places and just didn't interest me. PQ was solid but on the grainy side. Audio was good, but nothing going on much audio-wise.
Excerpt: I really don't have much to say to people who haven't already seen it. It's one of those movies I can talk about til the cows come home to people who have already seen it. All I can say is whatever you do, watch Take Shelter. It's one of the best films of the decade in my opinion. I consider it a modern masterpiece and I really, really don't use that term lightly. The video quality is one of the best I have in my collection.
Excerpt: I did not know much about this movie when I decided to blind buy it. I am so glad that I did buy it. This was a great movie. Amazing performances by the actors. The picture quality is so crystal clear, the sound is brilliant. Watch this movie!!!! Highly Recommended.
