    O filme conta a historia de um homem que tem constantes pesadelos com uma tempestade apocalíptica que está por vir. Michael Shannon faz o papel de Curtis um pai de família que trabalha em uma empreiteira e que tem a vida perfeita, mas tudo muda quando ele começa a ter “visões” de uma super tempestade.

    é triste ver como a vida do Curtis(Shannon) vai ficando cada vez mais difícil devido ao fato de quase todo mundo ao redor dele achar…

    Take Shelter é lindo e ao mesmo tempo aterrorizante. Uma fantástica olhada no que é perder a sanidade e sucumbir à ansiedade dos tempos modernos, e ao mesmo tempo, uma luz esperançosa sobre o quão forte uma família pode ser. O quanto uma pessoa pode salvar a outra.

    É um filme extremamente moderno, ele fala sobre os medos que nós temos agora, no século 21. Michael Shannon e Jessica Chastain capturam isso perfeitamente em duas atuações de arrasar, e o…

    Could you believe yourself?
    Did you repeat yourself?
    Cause no one would hear
    And just say it again
    Cause they never got you and you never got them

    A simple story about a man and his family. There's the surreal horror of floating furniture and motor oil rain, but there's also the tangible anxieties of not having health insurance, asking for a loan, and wanting to protect your family. The more I see this film, the more those tangible fears…

    A piercing sense of foreboding really drives this atmospheric thriller, while Shannon and Chastain's performances take it to even greater heights. Take Shelter is one of the decade's best films, analyzing mental illness, family structures, and knowledge vs instinct through ambiguous visual cues. It also features one of the most fully realized internal struggles I've seen in a while: Shannon's performance is truly revelatory.

    Michael Shannon is one of the more exciting actors currently working; and nothing will prove me correct more than his role here as a weary family-man who sees visions of an impending apocalypse. The ambiguity burrowed throughout this film is a wonderful way of telling a rather commonplace story, and the central theme of mental illness is an ever-greater way of involving the audience. The ambiguity of its ending benefits from much discussion, with a few different interpretations surfacing the…

    I had mixed feelings about the ending. I'm not sure whether or not it clouded an intense and unflinching look at schizophrenia. The acting was fabulous and the cinematography and sound editing brought to mind Malick. Ye could not avert yer eyes. But the ending... It throws you off and makes you think. Definitely worth rewatching.
