It’s not the rare occurrence when I disagree with the film critic community. This isn’t done out of spite or anything like that. Rather, it stems from a lack of tolerance for pretentious “art films” and mundane Oscar-bait on my part. Take Shelter seemed it wasn’t going to be one of those cases, however. Thrillers are in my wheelhouse. Trailers for the movie seemed full of intrigue and plenty of mind-fucks. I was grossly mistaken, though, as Take Shelter proved to be anything but intriguing.
