My son is a big fan of Jeff Nichols. He loves the way he presents his films. Nichols won’t spoon-feed the audience with a bunch of hints or anything obvious. He lets the audience be just as confused or surprised as the characters all the way to the end of the film. Nichols also likes to employ extremely subtle scenes (like at the very end of Midnight Special). I won’t divulge what happened in the last seconds of the film, but I didn’t catch it on first viewing. I highly enjoyed Midnight Special and Take Shelter, and I'm very happy that my son recommended these films to me.
