Heart of Darkness synopsis

In this adaptation of Joseph Conrad's classic novella, Marlow (Tim Roth) takes a job with a Belgian shipping company to captain a boat along the Congo River in Africa. He has been dispatched to locate Kurtz (John Malkovich), a former German general who had previously been one of the company's best suppliers. Lately, however, his actions have been erratic, and his shipments have stopped. As Marlow gets deeper within the jungle, he starts to realize that Kurtz has been completely transformed.
