Three sentence movie reviews: Take Shelter

This was one of those amazing movie experiences that make all those so-so flicks worth sitting through.  I’ve seen Michael Shannon’s fabulous acting on display in two other films* and he carried me away during this one too.  This is completely worth your time and money so go and find it today.

Cost:  Free from Library
Where watched:  at home.

*Revolutionary Road, where he was the key turning point in Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet’s marriage and The Runaways where he played sleazy Kim Fowley. The first role was a quiet crazy building to an explosion, the second an exuberant, bacchanalian picture of rock and roll excess.

  1. I liked it but thought the ending was a bit of a cop out. Michael Shannon was amazing. I recently saw him in Premium Rush and he was so ridiculously over-the-top, chewing the scenery left and right, that I was taken aback. I assume it's the performance that the director wanted, but I'm used to the actor being understated.
