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.

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.
