Nicolas Roeg's made-for-television adaptation of Joseph Conrad's classic Heart of Darkness succeeds because of its excellent cast and powerful story. Tim Roth stars as a solider who travels on an African river in search of Col. Kurtz (John Malkovich), a brilliant solider who has suddenly gone mad and is worshipped as a god by the native tribes. While it doesn't achieve the power of Conrad's novella or Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation Apocalypse Now, the movie has several fine sequences and excellent performances by the two leads.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a faithful and respectable version of Conrad's great classic, but not one that's memorable or exciting."
