Take Shelter

An ordinary Ohio family man (Michael Shannon from "Boardwalk Empire") is plagued by prophetic visions of an apocalyptic storm. When clouds begin to gather overhead, he's torn. Part of him is sure he's crazy, saddled with a family history of mental illness. Part of him wants to go all Noah his family, building a giant storm shelter to escape the end of the world. Writer-director Jeff Nichols (Shotgun Stories) keeps the drama mostly low-key, relying on a dreadful sense of foreboding and some spectacular cinematography to express our protagonist's conflicted state of mind. Half Old Testament, half Kafka, this one's spare but masterful. 120 minutes R.
