There's little for me to say because I just don't have the gumption to talk about what's bad about this movie, because everything is bad. The only good thing I can say about it is that it's staged pretty well, and things are in focus. That's about it. Everything else is just garbage. For the record, I'd never even heard of the web series this was based on, so I have no frame of reference. But if this is how the series plays, then count me out of it. I've got better things to do than watch this trash. An utter waste of time. Skippable, easily.
(fr) wrote: Take Shelter tells the story of a loving husband, father, and brother while he descends into unexplainable madness. He must figure out whether the visions he's experiencing are fragments of his imagination or apocalyptic warnings meant to prepare him for the incoming storm. Jeff Nichols tells this story with such tension, such attention for detail, and such artistic vision. Starting off slowly, the audience gets acquainted to Curtis and his family, while standing witness to the first horrific visions that plague the loving father. I don't really know how exactly this film manages to pull it off, but I certainly could feel myself, while staring at the screen, grow paranoid alongside Curtis. It is never really clear until the very end if Curtis is actually descending into madness or if his frightening visions have truth to them. The tension is built slowly but surely and as the film progresses and the madness grows stronger, so do the outstanding performances. I would not be over exaggerating by saying that Michael Shannons performance in perfect harmony to the ever brilliant Jessica Chastain, is undoubtedly one of the best on screen performances of the past few years. These characters are played with such devotion and passion, it's nearly impossible to not be able to understand the feelings that they go through. This film will certainly be remember as a milestone in filmmaking. Partly because of the degree of artistic openness Jeff Nichols presents onto his audience. Partly for the outstanding acting we were honored to witness, and lastly for the overlaying message that no matter how deep you may spiral into madness, the warmth of your loved ones will always be able to shine a light through the darkness. Jeff Nichols, with his fantastic eye for cinematic wizardry undoubtedly set the bar extremely high for any future thriller trying to step into its footsteps.
(au) wrote: This movie is worth watching for the realization that societies change a great deal over a couple generations' time, and its useful to be shocked at what used to be taken for granted. Its also worth considering how shocked we might be a decade or two down the road by things we have been taking for granted, such as a ban on serving openly in the military based on sexual preferences. The sets are stage-like and some of the lines, like the characters, are delivered with great effort and brevity, as they might be on a stage. This adds to the sense of unreality, of the breach between the fantasy-like appearance of things and the dark undertones.

In order to pay off the debt, his fiancee must spend the weekend with the gambling shark (James Caan). This comedy is definitely different and not for all tastes, but at its core, is a simple entertaining comedy that's worth a look.

(br) wrote: "It is about two people whose lives and behaviours are affected by a complex parasite-without knowing it-that has a three-stage life cycle in which it passes from humans to pigs to orchids. A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives."
(nl) wrote: Very small movie, but I liked it a lot. It doesn't drag at all and Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen are convincing as best friends. I'm surprised by the low ratings, but at the same time, I can see how it's not a story that would interest everyone. It's pretty much a coming of age story about two young girls and some of the bad choices a young girl can make.
