Movie Info

Since the first Gold Rush in the late 1890s, the Yukon - with its legendary Klondike gold fields - has been a remote land shrouded in mystery. In times of economic instability, the high price of gold makes the search for the precious metal all the more attractive. Individual miners compete in this modern day gold rush tale about the quest for the fabulous mother lode, the source, which, despite decades of exploitation, is still believed to lie hidden underground.

Critic Reviews for Earth's Golden Playground

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Horvath ... records every wind-swept activity with geological precision, but he dispenses with any sociological context regarding what continues to be a highly male-centric conceit.

Concentrating on two disparate figures seeking their fortunes, Earth's Golden Playground squanders the dramatic potential of its exotic locale and subject matter with a soporific style that all too readily suggests the drudgery attendant to the process.

The pacing may sometimes feel glacial but, as with the gold we eventually see harvested, the payoff proves worth the effort.

Mar 10, 2015 | Full Review…

Mr. Horvath's procedural, increasingly dry documentary takes the "rush" out of "gold rush."

This film about Yukon gold could only have duller if it had been about Yukon gold potatoes. No, I take that back. The potatoes would have been more interesting.
