MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Take Shelter
"Take Shelter" is a chilling, ominous film fired up by scintillating performances by the cast. Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain are truly on their A-game for this one. Even Kathy Baker is great in her cameo role as Shannon’s mother. The movie almost feels like a horror movie, as it had me jumping many times throughout. By the end, the movie grips you and start to feel uncomfortable as you join Shannon’s character in his apparent descent into madness.
