I wanted to show this clip because I think this movie had the best performance of 2011. This is Michael Shannon in Take Shelter. Its really sad because he hasn't received hardly any award recognition. He gives a performance that is both heartbreaking and terrifying. In this clip, I love the little mouth twitch he does right after she asks him how he is going to pay for that. Its a great nervous tick and makes you feel there's a lot going through his mind. Great movie with great performances,check it out!
