Into Eternity is a documentary that may look like a science fiction movie, but it ends up more of a horror film.
| Original Score: B
Madsen, whose symmetrical compositions and slo-mo shots of uniformed workers have a quality of Kubrickian sci-fi, frames the film as a message to the future.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
In a deceptively low-key manner, Danish filmmaker Michael Madsen has beautifully crafted one of the most provocative movies of the year.
| Original Score: 4/4
Directed by Danish filmmaker Michael Madsen with grace and deep curiosity, "Into Eternity" is better than timely.
Into Eternity provides few solutions regarding the estimated 200,000 to 300,000 tons of N-waste lying around the world, but it does alert us to potentially devastating consequences. Will we heed the warning?
| Original Score: 3/4
More like a troubling dream, or outtakes from an abandoned David Lynch project, than a conventional documentary.
While nothing said in his film undercuts this worry, the way the movie and the people in it express their concern gives it a feeling of sublimity unusual in most environmentalist documentaries.
| Original Score: 5/5
Defamiliarizing the snowy Nordic landscape, this delicately lurid documentary has a somber beauty. It is meant to boggle the mind and inspire awe-and it does.
The moral and scientific implications of the project are deftly sketched and engaging.
| Original Score: 3/5
