A dazzling piece of filmmaking, and much of the dazzle - as well as the anguished darkness - comes from Adam Stone's cinematography, which expresses the swirling state of Curtis's mind with richly varied flavors of light. show more
Take Shelter, which, it should be said, boasts haunting but seamless visual effects, is a movie for this moment in time, this moment in our lives. show more
I give this film one star only because of the good acting. But the story I give negative 3 stars.
This was a thought provoking film about mental illness and I was left with a sense of dread afterwards. The last 10 minutes made the film for me because I felt all along that something bad was going to happen by the time the film ended.
I give it a two star rating for the acting only, which i thought was pretty good. i\'m not sure what this movie was supposed to do. i usually stick with a movie, even though i think it\'s boring until the end to see what happens. this is one of those i wish i\'d have turned off. i would not recommend this to anyone and personally don\'t understand why it has received high ratings.
