an undervalued, wonderful and rarely seen gem.

i first saw this movie when it was released in london in '83 at one of only two cinemas which were screening it. this lavish and much overlooked $11,000.000 movie was with held by the film company that made it because they deemed it commercially unviable. it's a towering and beautifully shot tale based on the true story of harry oakes; a multi millionnaire gold prospector who was bruttally murdered in nassau in '43. the assurred direction, script and performances are all top notch. gene hackman gives a typically superb central performance and is ably supported by theresa russell as his daughter, rutger hauer as his difficult son in law along with joe pesci and mickey rourke as a pair of miami based mobsters. certain scenes are intensely violent and the undercurrent themes throughout may be too demanding for many which may explain why the film has alienated so many viewers over the years. the movie also boasts some wonderful locations (alaska, jamaica & pinewood!) and i personally rate it as one of my all time favourites.

Fractured...........yet... fascinating...

Rarely has a film had so much potential, that goes unrealized. Gene Hackman and his gold discovery is beautifully photographed, yet so unlikely and unrealistic, that it seems surreal. From the moment things shift to the island, the movie plays like a beautiful montage, with story continuity only an afterthought. It becomes merely a series of images strung together with philosophical messages, huge time jumps, flashbacks, and metaphysical nonsense. Yet, the images of ultra violence, nudity, snow, gold flakes, and the Victorian splendor, will linger long after the movie ends. From that standpoint at least some of "Eureka"s potential is realized, but not enough to grab the greatness that was within grasp. - MERK
