I made the mistake of accidentally submitting the post before I was finished. I didn't even know I'd done it until finishing and posting then looking
at the thread listing.
You made the mistake of trying to moderate a thread. I think you need to take a break.
Unless you have something to say about the movie in question, of course.
Here are the writer's thoughts
"When I began writing TAKE SHELTER in the summer of 2008, I was in the middle of my first year of marriage. Although both my career and personal life
were on a positive track, I had a nagging feeling that the world at large was heading for harder times. This free-floating anxiety was part economic,
part just growing up, but it mainly came from the fact that I finally had things in my life that I didn't want to lose. All of these feelings filtered
directly into the characters of this film.
TAKE SHELTER follows Curtis LaForche, a working class husband and father, as he deals with the panic that arises from a series of terrifying dreams.
For Curtis, these dreams are either harbingers of a supernatural storm, or early symptoms of something he's feared his entire life. Curtis' strongest,
most immediate reaction is to protect his family, his wife Samantha and their six-year-old daughter Hannah. The question for Curtis becomes, what is
he protecting them from, the storm or himself?
I wrote TAKE SHELTER because I believed there was a feeling out in the world that was palpable. It was an anxiety that was very real in my life, and I
had the notion it was very real in the lives of other Americans as well as other people around the world. This film was a way for me to talk about
that fear and that anxiety. I hope there is an answer to this feeling by the end of the film. I believe there is, and it's the reason that this
wonderful group of people came together to help me make TAKE SHELTER".
Sounds like a cool bloke. I'll have to have a look for his other shizzle.
It's not that the film is exactly 'topical', its just timely, if that's not too contradictory.
I'm not sure there is an answer at the end
either, but would love to hear other's thoughts once they have seen the fillum! I need to sleep on it.
