Take Shelter 
Take Shelter review
4/4 stars

"It ain't always so easy." - Curtis (Michael Shannon). One of the most realistic pre-apocalyptic film (next to maybe The Road). This flick reminded me of a Donnie Darko without the humor and special effects. Curtis keeps seeing things awake and even during dreams. He lives with a supporting and understanding wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) and their deaf daughter Hannah (Tova Stewart). Without the extraordinary acting of Michael Shannon, this would have not been possible. It composes of minute horror elements, post apocalyptic family drama and thought provoking screenplay. Direction was just sensational, screenplay effective, splendid cinematography and pace keeps you glued from start until the very big reveal. Surprising how the major awards bodies miss a hidden gem such as this. Patience and being observant has its rewards, this is one of those films that needs full attention. It's intent honest about climate/nature with lines: "Is anyone else seeing this?" from Curtis and "You've got a good life, Curtis. I think that's the best compliment you can give a man; take a look at his life and say, 'That's good'." from Dewart. Take Shelter is about sacrifices, life's harsh struggles, nature's force, gut feeling, and support from family. Easily one of the best undiscovered and snubbed film of 2011.
