Time Out says

Refn's muddled, Wisconsin-set thriller - cousin to Memento - proves cripplingly derivative albeit impressively atmospheric. Turturro plays a bereaved security guard with the cinematically evocative name Harry Cain, and the film summons a mood of snowbound drift and clammy bewilderment, as it observes him investigating the murder of his pregnant wife. Refn can spin spectres out of blurred surveillance camera footage or the creaks and shadows of an empty house, but the last reel parks the hero in a bad episode of Twin Peaks (his hotel even looks like the Great Northern) and lumbers toward a climax both ludicrous and conventional. JWin.
