Madsen's ominous work is reminiscent, stylistically, of Kubrick's masterworks 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and The Shining (1980) in its visual precision and chilly environs.

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.

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?

February 1, 2011
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.
January 28, 2011
The film reaches way beyond the usual activist crowd by making itself as formally compelling as it is tightly argued.
