If you liked Michael Shannon as a Jew-drowning secret masturbator on Boardwalk Empire (AND WHO DIDN’T!), you’ll LOVE him as a possibly-schizophrenic family man with visions of apocalyptic storms in Take Shelter. Writer/Director Jeff Nichols’ second feature played to rave reviews at Sundance and Cannes, and come this October, it’ll be available even to the non-fart-huffing trust-fund-hipster public at large (provided they live near a Landmark theater, I’m guessing).
