Take Shelter ★★★☆☆

"A refreshing answer to the special effects laden disaster films of Hollywood"
Screening at this year's 55th BFI London Film Festival, Take Shelter (2011) once again unites Shotgun Stories (2007) director Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon. Set against a backdrop of Middle American domestic life, Take Shelter is a far more visual film, combining elements of terror with a kitchen sink drama that confirms both men as masters of their chosen trade.
