    Michael Shannon e Jessica Chastain imprimem uma boa dinâmica que prende o espectador ao drama do personagem principal. Peca um pouco em seu roteiro às vezes expositivo, e em alguns problemas de ritmo.

    An amazing film about a man who experiences Apocalyptic visions, unsure whether to protect his family from his oncoming mental illness or a brewing storm he believes will hit.

    Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain deliver powerful performances as a couple in love facing the onset of disaster. That ending leaves your breathless.

    I’m not very familiar with Michael Shannon’s film roles but I’m aware of what an extraordinary actor he is because after seeing his masterful performance as Nelson Van Alden in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, that is more than enough for me to call him so. However, I’m glad I finally watched him in a starring role in a movie and I have to say that he couldn’t have picked a better role that fits his style.

    Shannon’s “normal” face is already…

    (this review was written in 2011 after Chastain's three-peat year)

    The ubiquitous Jessica Chastain (The Help, Tree of Life, The Debt) does it again (meaning she's damn good) in Take Shelter, as the wife of a man (Michael Shannon - Revolutionary Road, "Boardwalk Empire") who begins to suffer from apocalyptic dreams and who dreads in following in the footsteps of his mother who was diagnosed in her mid-thirties as a paranoid schizophrenic. Is the man having premonitions of the future…

    Feels like a pretty awesome educational film about Schizophrenia. But fails as a movie in the classical sense due to it’s rather "flat" storyline.

    One of the greatest films about paranoia ever made.
    Take Shelter is about Curtis, who keeps having nightmares about a storm. He eventually becomes obsessed with the idea of a grand storm destroying everything he loves and starts building a shelter at the cost of spending a lot money and destroying his relationships with his friends and family.
    What differs this from many psychological thrillers is that the cause of Curtis's obsession is his urge to protect his family. Although…

    Nichols captures the pulse of the Midwest - mannerisms, moral code, decorum - without resorting to the crazed, hyper depictions of otherness that some films, even the good ones (Winter's Bone) fall back upon. The fish fry in the church basement is particularly memorable because I spent my entire elementary education eating similarly unsightly food in the basement of a church, the pastel walls and fluorescent lights radiating that same zoned out, eerie dejection; the homes built in neighborhoods with…

    Esperaba una película apocalíptica llena de acción, en donde todo iba a destruirse y la gente se iba a morir. Pero fue completamente diferente, es una historia con un ritmo lento, con poca acción, pero que me atrapo casi desde el principio.

    Nos muestran la historia de Curtis, un hombre que empieza tener visiones apocalípticas en sus sueños, y algunas veces fuera de ellos. Estas visiones son cada vez mas frecuentes y vividas, por lo que el personaje tiene una…
