Intriguing failure - Eureka review by DJ

Spoiler Alert
20/04/2020

I’d rather watch Roeg fail than lesser - and less interesting - directors succeed. Eureka is, ultimately, a failure. The last third in particular, when it shifts to a very strange and very tedious courtroom drama, is more or less unwatchable. Prior to this disappointing ending, Roeg’s aesthetic and some interesting scenes - especially the beginnings in the Yukon - are enough to recommend it to Roeg fans. To others, there’s probably too little in the way of plot to wholeheartedly recommend it as an introduction. Better to start with Walkabout or Don’t Look Now.
