"I never considered myself going into 'Shotgun Stories' as a filmmaker with worldly aspirations in terms of the stories I'm trying to tell. In fact, it was quite the opposite; they were very specific and very regional. But I realized that there's power in coming up with some kind of universal feeling and I was very much aware when selecting this topic for this film."
The topic, in this case, is anxiety; the film is "Take Shelter." And the man who made it, the man talking about his lack of worldly aspirations, is Jeff Nichols. He might want to find some and fast; "Take Shelter" is a very powerful film, even more powerful than his impressive debut, "Shotgun Stories," from 2007. In my opinion, it's one of the best movies of the year.
