Take Shelter 
Outstanding
4/4 stars

Take Shelter is a great movie. Writer/director Jeff Nichols magnificantly combines elements of horror, emotion, and family drama that makes for a compelling watch. Michael Shannon's brave performance carries the movie, and what he brings to his character feels dark and realistic. He does a magnificent job, and he truly should have been nominated for an Academy Award for best actor last year. The dream sequences and hallucinations are very intense and appropriately frightening, the cinematography is breath-taking, the characters are exceptionally developed and believable, the score is darkly fantastic, and the production is top-notch. The film gets a little bit slow in the middle section, but it builds to an unbelievable finale. This is the best film of 2011. Hands down.

Watching Shannon act is entertaining enough. This film was a surprise and deep as well.

I think Michael Shannon is a criminally underrated actor - that being said, I've had this film on my list to watch out for since I first came across it - nice to know I should be in for a treat.
