    One of the year's best films, and certainly its most challenging so far: At more than three hours, watching it is less like consuming entertainment and more like living.

    Quiet, powerful, contemplative, respectful of stillness, Eureka is the first film this year in which there is obvious greatness.
  3. Aoyama's monochrome images are filled with a simple shadowy beauty and his scenes are rich in tender sensitivity and empathy.
  4. Understated acting and brilliant use of wide-screen black-and-white cinematography.

    Builds steadily through a series of masterfully orchestrated modulations to a final act without shattering revelations or lofty dramatic peaks but with a quiet, formidable power.
  6. 90
    A film of rare tenderness and mystery.
  7. To watch this film, in short, can be a transforming experience.
  8. Wrenching performances and painstaking visual and thematic compositions.
  9. Slow -- sometimes maddeningly, soporifically so.
