The true story of a man richer than Getty, stranger than Hughes... 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. Twenty years after uncovering an unimaginable bounty of gold in the Klondike, prospector Jack McCann, now settled in the Caribbean, finds both his wealth and soul at stake amongst 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. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film in a Dual-Format special edition. He found his fortune... but at what cost? SPECIAL FEATURES including: High-definition digital transfer Subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Audio recording of Q&A with Nicolas Roeg at the world premiere Exclusive new interviews with producer Jeremy Thomas, writer Paul Mayersberg and editor Tony Lawson Isolated music & effects track Theatrical trailer PLUS: A booklet featuring a new essay by Daniel Bird, a reprinted interview with Roeg, an excerpt from Roeg's autobiography and Robert W. Service's poem The Spell of the Yukon Review ''A terrific cast (especially class act Hackman), some stunning imagery, and a story reeking with primal forces'' --Radio Times''A strange, perverse film about passion and greed a visual feast'' --Roger Ebert''A watershed film'' --Senses of Cinema
