Still thinking about this movie a week after watching it….
This is my first review, I felt compelled to write it due to this absolutely amazing and thought provoking movie. For me it’s a work of art, from the acting to the dialogue to the cinematography but more importantly the subject matter. I have dealt with issues in my own family that relate to this movie so it really hit a raw nerve with me. It actually opened my eyes and mind to my own past.
Why this movie has gone under the radar in terms of awards baffles me!? The acting is something I’ve never seen before and I’ve watched a lot of movies in my time. It was so real, all the actors were brilliant but Michael Shannon who plays Curtis and Jessica Chastain who plays Sam were outstandingly good. Some of their scenes together had me in tears. The little girl who played their daughter was brilliant to, so believable.
You really must see this movie, I’d go as far as saying it’s the best movie I’ve seen for years. Jeff Nichols has an amazing mind! All I can say is WOW!
For 110 minutes “Take Shelter” is a gripping, dread inducing portrait of an average Joe going off the rails. At first there is a certain amount of ambiguity as to whether the main character’s nightmares are apocalyptic premonitions or manifestations of creeping anxiety. The plain-spoken naturalism of the script, direction and performances — especially Michael Shannon’s believably unraveling lead — stack up on the side of a mental breakdown. The details of his crack-up are painfully accurate and he even has a family history of schizophrenia.
Then, in the last few minutes, the movie becomes a highfalutin “Twilight Zone” episode, with one of those “gotcha” endings of the “It’s a cookbook!” ilk. This would not be so bad if the buildup had not been so tonally different. As it is it’s an utter betrayal of everything that preceded it and an insult to audiences’ emotional investment in the characters.
“Take Shelter” is the latest and most egregious example of a distressing trend among filmmakers to take manifestly silly premises and invest them with dour gravity. Nolan, Shymalan, and Singer are the avatars of this style. They try to turn comic book and supermarket tabloid subjects into Ibsen, sucking out the fun as they inflate their stature. Rod Serling is surely rolling in his grave.
