“Taut, unsettling, haunting and powerful.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Take Shelter, which, it should be said, boasts haunting but seamless visual effects, is a movie for this moment in time, this moment in our lives.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

“The film concludes not with a ‘surprise ending’ but with a series of shots that brilliantly summarize all that has gone before. This is masterful filmmaking.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
