There is a powerful film entitled Take Shelter (2011). It stars Michael Shannon as a man whom we are led to believe is either mentally ill or having prophetic dreams and visions. The screenplay walks a tightrope between crazy (fake) or sane (real). As the story progresses, the evidence increasingly suggests that the man is mentally ill. Only in the final minutes of the film does it become clear that the man is indeed sane: his visions were prophetic. Everything that has preceded the closing scene is cast in a startling new light.Why mention this on the Tracy discussion board? Draw your own conclusions.
