We’ve got some movie news for you today dear readers, Nicolas Roeg’s unsung masterpiece, EUREKA, featuring Gene Hackman, Theresa Russell, Rutger Hauer, Joe Pesci and Mickey Rourke, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, in a Dual Format edition as part of The Masters of Cinema Series.
Eureka Entertainment is to release EUREKA this march on DVD and Blu-ray, which is great news for movie fans, including myself, I remember seeing the movie when it first came out and really enjoyed it, but sadly haven’t seen it since, so it will be great to get my hands on the movie to add to my collection of classic movies.
One of the most revered figures in modern cinema; Nicolas Roeg’s Eureka was barely released at the time of its making and overlooked by critics. Now, three decades later, it returns to reclaim a place among both the front ranks of Roeg’s work and as one of the most extraordinary studio films of the 1980s.
“A terrific cast (especially class act Hackman), some stunning imagery, and a story reeking with primal forces” – Radio Times
Twenty years after uncovering an unimaginable bounty of gold in the Klondike, prospector Jack McCann (played by Gene Hackman), now settled in the Caribbean, finds both his wealth and soul at stake among a sinister web of nefarious influences, spiritual malaise and criminal elements.
A saga of almost cosmic proportions, headlined by an exceptional cast including Gene Hackman, Rutger Hauer, Theresa Russell, Mickey Rourke, Joe Pesci and Joe Spinell, Eureka is as powerfully acted, formally audacious, thematically layered and emotionally complex as any of Roeg’s work.
