Jeff Nichols

Loving Review

Loving is an astonishingly humanist film, one that drops bombast in favour of a cool, concise storyline.

Midnight Special Review

Michael Shannon once again teams with director Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter) for a different kind of film, Midnight Special shoots for the stars and hits every one.

Mud Review

Mud feels like a classical young adult novel from the 80s or 90s brought to life with all of the life lessons intact, and it's mostly a positive thing.

Take Shelter Review

There’s a moment when Michael Shannon, chaperoning his sleeping family across the dark flooded highways, pulls over and steps out of his car. Off in the distance, crackles of lightning tear apart the sky, pounding the earth below it in fury. Looking around while cars behind him continue to drive by and his family rests undisturbed, he asks aloud, to the world, if he’s the only one seeing this apocalyptic sight. Jeff Nichols’ second feature Take Shelter has been conjuring its own storm on the festival circuit, a study of a humble man who suffers against an behemoth enemy only he can see.
