Take Shelter From Irony
I saw the film Take Shelter again, making it 5 times now.
It is Fatal Irony... that's why I like it. We are living in the Age of Fatal Irony ("fatal" in the sense of "fate", not necessarily a mortality...).
I consider the Trump administration to be one of the first clear and unmistakable steps of our descent into the maelstrom, and it confirmed my belief in the ironic and fatal (now in the sense of "mortally wounding") twists that we have begun.
The end of Take Shelter is possibly the most terrifying and scary sudden ironic turning that I have ever seen.
