Default 'Take Shelter' - High-Def Digest Review

Luke has just reviewed 'Take Shelter.' He says this was the best film he saw at Sundance 2011. You have to check this film out. Highly recommended!

I saw this in the theater (had to drive 30 minutes to find one that was playing it), and though it was great. I was a little surprised and disappointed that it didn't receive any nominations.

Four more months before we move from Berlin back to the States. I've been waiting to see this film for so long, and man, I don't know if I can keep waiting!

Looking forward to seeing this one (finally). Drive and Warrior were the best movies I saw in 2011...but I have a feeling this one will be added to my list. Trailer was intoxicating and really grabbed my attention.

This is a completely brilliant movie. The best movie of 2011. shannon and chastain should have won oscars. Shannon's performance, in particular, is the best I've seen in any movie in at least the past 5 years.

and then theres the ending... After watching it the first time, i thought The ending could be interpreted 2 different ways. Upon watching the movie a second time, I realize that both possible interpretations were wrong and settled on a third... Which was beautiful and perfect in so many ways. There are very few movies I'd rate as "perfect." This is one of them. Every scene, every shot, every sound effect, every line of dialog, is perfect and contributes directly towards the story. The editing was amazing. This is a must own film for anyone who loves movies. If anyone else has seen the movie, is love to know your take on the ending (spoiler tags of course).

Not a bad movie but the cinematography has one of the worst cases of Teal and Orange Syndrome I've ever seen. http://theabyssgazes.blogspot.com/20...ease-stop.html

Doesn't bother me at all. I thought the cinematography was beautiful. Maybe it's one of those things that only bothers you if you're looking for it. Besides, I watch all movies I'm thx cinema mode on my tv which tones down colors, so maybe that prevents me from seeing the effect.
