Saw film TAKE SHELTER - with an excellent performance by Michael Shannon and a terrific one by Jessica Chastain - a surprise as I found her to be almost invisible in The Tree of Life. I don't want to say too much about this film because I do not want to spoil it for you, but I watched the slow march of anxiety enveloping Michael Shannon, who only wants to keep his family "safe." Of course irony and genetics interfere.
I hated the ending - found it to be a complete cop-out. Almost ruined the film for me. Another Deus ex-machina ploy. Though some critics thought it was brilliant.
But this film has inspired my next painting so something good came out of it.
