Part family drama, part psychological thriller, “Take Shelter” manages to succeed as an otherworldly blend of “Field of Dreams” and Noah’s Ark. Following up his 2007 festival hit “Shotgun Stories,” director Jeff Nichols re-teams with Michael Shannon for the absorbing saga of a mentally disturbed husband and father inexplicably driven to build a tornado shelter in his backyard. As with “Shotgun Stories,” Nichols assembles a tense portrait of blue-collar life, while deepening his thematic interests and working on a bigger scale. Burrowing into the subconscious of a damaged man, he delivers a modern American epic with extraordinary restraint.
