Does anyone know of any films which deal with an intellectual quest- like
an academic mystery involving ideas?  For example, if they made a movie of
"The Double Helix" about Watson and Crick's discovery of DNA.  I'm
interested in protagonists whose motivation is to know (and not...who
dunit), to understand, to make sense of the world.  Obviously these would
be character driven stories.
 
Gonna be a help and a pain here.  There is a BBC TV Movie (sorry can't
remember the name) of a few years ago which is in fact about the
Watson/Crick DNA discovery.  Starred Jeff Goldblum as one of the
protagonists.  I can only suggest contacting BBC Worldwide or whatever -
they have probably released it on tape.
Cheers
Mark
 
PS Just thought of "The Magic Bullet" I think, might be "Dr Ehrlich's Magic
Bullet" all about the search for the cure to syphillis I believe.  Classic
example.  It's an oldie, b+w, and I'm sure it has a notable
director/star/writer whose name I can't remember.
