        Gay interpretation. The story is actually meant to be taken literally. Director even said so.

      Guy has visions about the end of the world; his life becomes completely turned upside down; vision turns out to be true in the final scene because his daughter, and we, the spectators, see the storm reflected on the window pane.

    One of the top 10 movies of the 21st century. The ending is beautiful.

      Literally how? It's a more boring version of Field of Dreams, just swap out the baseball field with a shelter.

        It's about the limit between delusions and visions, how family sticks together and how sometimes we should take shelter because the visions are not delusions at all.

    It's not real you idiots, he literally has paranoid schizophrenia and will literally be committed to a mental institution after his vacation. His psychiatrist is a moron for letting him go in the first place.

        if you think this describes Take Shelter at all you are just as mentally ill as the main character

          I don’t I was just giving the guy I was talking to the benefit of the doubt. imo it’s all real but the movie it too fucking long for its concept. Should have been a real banger 2 minute short film. Not 2 hours

            It's also supposed to make you empathize with the guy as a worker, a dedicated family man, a person with social ties and consider the catharsis he and his family go through at the ending.
            A movie that is relatively similar in a way is Close Encounters of the Third Kind

      It's obviously real and it triggers types such as you don't seem to have paid attention: the director unmistakably tells us that narratively because he shows it through the expression of the daughter and then through the reflex on the window pane.The movie never steps out of its narrative reality, it never shows delusions from Shannon's character's POV

        K thanks but I think I'll stick with the man has schziophrenia and is about to be committed to a mental institution theory

        • 3 weeks ago

          That's the thing and the basis for the movie's beauty: it hints that it was all a mental condition, gives the viewer a conventional epilogue of sorts and then the final scene upends it all by showing what happens in the horizon through the eyes of the daughter and our own. His wife feels the rain drops as well.

              The ending is so beautiful and the interpretation I mentioned adds so much (though it is 100% objective) that I rather give other people the chance to enjoy it too.

            ya, I'm going to go ahead and stick with the "man that has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and is to be committed to a mental institution has another paranoid schizophrenic delusion" theory,

              You can stick with anything but that isn't narratively warranted. The movie has one single tone, it doesn't have an unreliable narrator and the final scene is literally impossible to be chalked up to his individual perspective.

      >bro literally
      It's clearly at best left up to debate but very likely real

      It was apocalyptic and the hint was that the family had been chosen to understand this and perhaps be saved because they stuck together.

        That's basically what I got out of it, too. The whole oily rain thing was weird, though. If oil covers the world in major rainstorms, that's game over. Everything's dying.

          Yes, it's an Old Testament allegory: a plague rather than a mere weather phenomenon, and the rightful, through their persistence and good faith, will be saved as Noah was.

          I don't know. They believe it when they see it and the ending has them fleeing very resolutely in order to take shelter

          I love both. The mysterious theme and the main character trying to make sense of what becomes gradually visible make for 2 great movies
