    Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.
    The movie has atmosphere and a good cast, but the whole story is based on the question "Is this only in his imagination?" so that the last scene is predictably the answer to that question, and there are only 2 options: yes or no.

    I had no idea Jeff Nichols and Ben Nichols of Lucero were brothers until the end credits started rolling and now I feel like I just cracked some kind of secret indie code.

    (Also this film is terrific.)

    (Short Review)

    "Take Shelter" is more than just a movie. It's an experience. The acting was just perfect, the directing was perfect, the cinematography was perfect, and the music was also great. Some of my favorite parts was whenever there is dialogue, most of the time there is no music playing. The dialogue itself just captures the moment. So, yeah. I really don't have any problems with this movie at all. I think it's worth a watch.

    10/10 (A+)

    Would have gotten a near full score if it wasnt for the at times intrusive and annoying score.

    Eigentlich ein ganz interessantes Thema. Ein Typ bildet sich ein die Welt geht unter und er baut sich deswegen ein Schutzraum. Soweit ist der Film auch ganz gut, weil er zeigt, wie die Familie versucht mit seiner Angst umzugehen. Nur leider ist die Auflösung des Film in meinen Augen sehr bescheuert.

    It's truly a directorial feat that Take Shelter can crawl along as slowly as it does and still remain interesting. The story seems a little thin sometimes, but the characters are well crafted and likable enough that they fill in any gaps.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Strikes a balance between the intra-familial pain of mental illness and major environmental disturbance. Even at the end, we're unsure if Curtis is developing schizophrenia. Yes, a giant, off-putting storm is coming, but does that mean the medical history and evidence lines up?

    Very contemplative, and I'm glad to see some very nice, clean, composed shots. There's a strong atmosphere, which seems very challenging in the simple, straightforward setting.
