    Imagine Field of Dreams and Noah without the baseball or animals. Take Shelter sees Michael Shannon as a loving father who starts to have strange dreams and premonitions about impending doom. Shannon a much underrated actor shines in the role of the tormented parent. Jessica Chastain provides great support as his partner.

    Eigentlich ein sehr guter und vielschichtiger Film, dessen Ende leider die komplette Wirkung zerstört.

    I'm apparently in the minority when it comes to people's thoughts on Take Shelter. This movie was perhaps the most slow paced movie I've ever seen, and not in a good way. Nothing happens throughout most of the film. It seems like most of the time is spent in doctor's offices or at insurance companies, with boring dialogue and subpar acting. The plot makes about zero sense, with Michael Shannon's character having nonsensical dreams about an upcoming storm that can…

    This is an excellent movie. Normally the slow paced flicks kinda bore me, and this one is definitely slow paced. But the main characters descent into what he and everyone else thinks is madness is so strong i almost felt it myself. And that ending, so slow and subtle but still chilling, great stuff. The effects were beautiful, the acting was great and the story was fantastic. I highly recommend this one to everyone.

    La segunda vez como que pierde fuerza, pero los actores y el estilazo que tiene la dirección lo compensa todo.

    Didn't fully appreciate the ending first time I watched this film. How silly I was.

    Powerhouse performance by Michael Shannon elevates an otherwise mediocre film into something more. Ambiguous ending doesn't do a whole lot for me, but I can see why some would enjoy. See this just for Michael Shannon.

    One of the best films I've seen in ages. I'm blown away.
    What a powerful storyline! The acting, the score, the photography, the way schizophrenia is treated... everything is incredible.
    This really captivated me from the very first minute. And that ending... Michael Shannon gives his best performance.
    For me, the best film of 2011 (with the permission of my beloved Drive).

    This is one of those film that is better the less you know beforehand. Michael Shannon's dark, brooding performance elicits both fear and sympathy as he descends into madness. Or does he?
