    For Eureka, Lisandro Alonso returns to the face of Misael Saavedra and those who look like him in order to map the colonial wound over continental spaces. The Western that opens this triptych is a rather satisfiying closing chapter on the poorly aging Jauja.

    and pools, the one who guides me
    across the city, who helps me
    when I can’t move my eyes

    She turns my head and says,
    "There is a post office;
    there is a public theater ..."
