Eureka [Import] DVD
Eureka is a nuanced tale about the lingering emotional cost of sudden, inexplicable tragedy, told on an epic scale (think the Sweet Hereafter merged with the Searchers). Director Shinji Aoyama, who has been consistently responsible for some of the most interesting works to come out of Japan, was reportedly inspired to write this tale in the wake of religious cult Aum Shinrikyo's 1995 nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway. Originally released in 2000. Original Japanese dialogue with optional English & Chinese subtitles. 218 minutes/NTSC/Region 0. Panorama. 2003.
