An Arctic explorer literally falls into a mountain of gold and in so doing becomes the richest man in the world. But, as we know, wealth does not bring happiness. Eureka divides into three distinct parts - the discovery, the death, the trial. John Boorman rates the first two parts as potentially the greatest movie ever made and these sections contain some of the finest examples of movie-making you will ever see. It is in the final part that we get some of the most highly charged emotional performances. A masterpiece.
