Performers, Cast and Crew:
Box Office - 06/10/2011
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The drama of TAKE SHELTER resembles Todd Haynes' SAFE in its real-world fear and paranoia, but it's warmer, more poignant and more suspenseful than that 1995 psychodrama."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/07/2011
"Writer-director Jeff Nichols builds his elegantly shot, weather-sensitive horror story in waves of tension that crest as if pulled by tempests." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club - 09/29/2011
"Nichols is still concerned with family legacies, and the ways people in smaller communities relate to each other, but TAKE SHELTER is slower and smoother, deliberately developing a mood of creeping dread."
Rolling Stone - 10/13/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "Nichols throws curveballs, but his film is unique and unforgettable."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/05/2011
4 stars out of 4 -- "Here is a frightening thriller based not on special effects gimmicks but on a dread that seems quietly spreading in the land..."
Washington Post - 10/14/2011
4 stars out of 4 -- "Taut, unsettling, haunting and powerful, TAKE SHELTER stars Michael Shannon in a shattering performance as a man caught up in forces beyond his control."
Total Film - 01/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] beguiling mix of Polanski-esque psychological terror and Loach-like social realism....Aided by the poetic, often Malick-esque visuals...it's a brave idea, boldly executed."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2011
"[TAKE SHELTER] grows more convincing as it develops Curtis's predicament....It's a pleasure and a relief to see a film about the realities as well as the surrealities of the world..."
Uncut - 01/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "Jessica Chastain makes a more forceful, feisty mother than she did in Terrence Malick's THE TREE OF LIFE, while in the lead, Shannon is as riveting as ever."
