    5-0 out of 5 stars golf life as it used to be
    As a former tour player now out of the game, this film captures alot of what the PGA tour used to be.The race to "Monday Qualifiers" by what we were referred to as "rabbits" was filled with alot of the shenanigans this movie portrays. I'm sure the PGA wasn't especially thrilled with the movie, but this system produced greats like Trevino, Rodriguez, and many more.Would love to see this movie out in DVD (haven't owned a VCR in years)soon!As per other reviews, B movie with great content and storyline. Would by 10 DVD's for gifts for my golfing buddies!

    4-0 out of 5 stars A rememberable movie
    Excellent Golf Movie, RANDY QUAID at his best.Perhaps the best since & quot. THE Last Detail & quot. The TIN CUP OF THE 80'S.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "You always were a silly old romantic, Spec."
    I wrote HBO pictures a few years ago begging for a DVD release, and still we're forced to wait, and wait, and wait.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why is this movie so underrecognized?
    I haven't seen this movie in a while, but I absolutely loved it as a child. Just a warning, though: I've never cried so hard at ANY movie. I actually thought my heart would break for these cartoon animals. But while I'm not sure why such tragic moments are necessary for kids to endure (this is why my sister refuses to watch it), it remains one of my favorites from Disney.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Underrated Disney Classic.
    The Fox and The Hound was made in a time when Disney animation had lost some of its luster . It was one of the last films of the old guard until the transition to the highly popular animated musical "The Little Mermaid". Probably because of this it was not as highly regarded as many of the early classics and the post Mermaid period.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Correct screen ratio! This movie IS FULL FRAME!
    O.K. I can answer the many questions about the correct screen ratio of THE FOX AND THE HOUND.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Imitation of Laff
    A lot of people love this movie and so do I--but probably not for the same reason. Not for nothing was this the last gasp of the Ross Hunter tearjerkers in the "Imitation of Life"/"Back Street" mode. By the mid-Sixties, this type of hokum was far more comic than melodramatic--just look at the ridiculous casting, which includes a 40-something Lana Turner (who'd just played Sandra Dee's mother/stepmother in her last few pictures) as a young bride. . . having her first child! Surrounding her with inappropriate actors like bland John Forstyhe (as her middle-aged ambitious "young" husband) and veteran Constance Bennett (who somehow looks more like Lana's younger sister than her mother-in-law) didn't help realism. Cheesy production values and anacronisms (all the women are dressed in the height of Sixties middlebrow fashions--in scenes taking place thirty years earlier!) just add to the fun. A real howl, especially when an Oscar-hungry Turner goes to pot in the final reels. You'll cry alright--with laughter.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Greats!
    If you're looking for a rainy afternoon or late night tearjerker, bursting at the seams with impeccable style, glamour and delicious disaster, this is your film. Only Lana Turner can deliver such wistful heartbreak in the finest gowns and jewels one instant, and next be the tragic victim of misfortune, suffering as only those who fall from on high can know.To call it melodrama would be an insult, this is classic cinema, with Hollywood royalty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Love story
    A beautiful soulmate story. The passion between Timothy and Kelly in this movie makes you want to fall in love over and over again. I gave this movie five stars because of the deep spiritual connection between the characters and their lives. The best surprise is how many famous actors are in this classic. This is my all time favorite love story.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Family Dog - Family Favorite
    The first half of this is a less than memorable Christopher Lloyd episode of Amazing Stories, which says a lot about the writing since Christopher Lloyd could make a piece of toast funny. The second half of this is the Family Dog, which is not only memorable, but classic and under appreciated. This animated half hour has excellent writing, animation, and voice talent - including Annie Potts as the mother. The hilarity of home life is in your face and leaves you wanting more. My sisters, brother, even my mother quoted it for years after seeing it, "Oh my gawd they've taken the coffee maker!" My family was very grateful when years after seeing it, I bought each of them a copy through Amazon. They love it and watch it over and over- and what makes a classic of something beyond the audiences love of returning to the material? Even though the eventual animated series it spawned lacked the same writing punch, I would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of good clean "art imitating family life" humor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's perfect... would like it on DVD
    We first watched it about 18 years ago and it's brilliant, a real gem. We watch it every couple of years now and enjoy just as much. The VHS tape (which was a copy) is almost unwatchable... would love to get the DVD.
    4-0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOD!!!
    The cartoon was unbelievably funny! That rotten little boy and the smartass dog was too too funny for words.I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO ANYONE WITH AN ATTITUDE PROBLEM BECAUSE THIS MOVIE WILL GET RID OF IT TEMPORARILY.

    gary cole as custer,rodney a grant as crazy horse,and roseanna arquette as libby custer make this t.v.mini series shine and one of the best tellings of the life of custer ever put on film.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved the movie,but how much longer for the DVD?
    Despite being a made for TV flick, this is my fav Little Big Horn movie.I don't know why it takes what feels like forever to reprint VHS versions to DVD whith all the high-tech out there, but like Zulu Dawn, another of my favorite war flicks, it seems that the conversion of celluloid to digital is as slow as molasses in January (that's January in Norther Virginia, and baby, it get's cold here!).I found the acting of all the characters excellent, the storyline, wonderful, the action super, and the perspective from both sides, the red man and the white man, excellent, and the atmosphere convincing, although there is not much grit to the era in the movie.Just stop farting around and get me a DVD version and make me a very happy fan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "son of the morning star" is a true epic
    this is t.v.'s take at the boxoffic and oscar power of "dances with wolves" and it is really the best thing t.v. has done next to "lonesome dove". gary cole is just perfect as the bold,ego manic, loving husband, and a commanding officer no one would want. rodney grant of "dances with wolves" is also great as crazy horse and the battle is the center piece of this fine look at the little big horn from both sides and really brings home the sadness of what followed for both sides. this belongs on dvd, i hope it is soon. but if a tape is what it takes to see this movie then buy it you will love it ...

    Editorial Review

    Remember watching this silly little comedy from your childhood? It may not have aged all that well, but is still goofy, good fun. Okay, so you can spot the stunt double, and Don Knotts's twitches are a little more obvious. Still, fans of his familiar routines will be comforted in knowing they can again watch their skinny underdog hero solve the ghost story while winning the prettiest girl in town. Knotts plays a trembling typesetter hoping to become a reporter by cracking the mystery of the local haunted house. To do so, he must spend a night there. Good-hearted, non-threatening, and completely gooey, this is the equivalent of light-weight cinematic junk food.Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars too expensive
    yes, waaaay too expensive
    4-0 out of 5 stars "She Came Home and Vibrated for an Hour!"
    The above is the only risque line you will hear in this classic family comedy starring the one and only Don Knotts.I just watched this movie for the first time in over 30 years and this movie brought back so many memories.If you were born between 1955 and 1965, this film was probably a big part of your childhood.I was a little too young to see it when it released to theaters, but it played on local television at least once a year in the late 1960's andearly 1970's. It doesn't have much of a reputation in "film" circles but for kids of that era it's one of the period's essential films.
    5-0 out of 5 stars KNOTT'S BEST FILM!
    The Ghost & Mr. Chicken has always been my favorite Don Knotts movie and probably my favorite role of the recently passed comedian.The film was made in 1966, just one year after he had left the Andy Griffith Show.The film not only works as a wonderful comedy but also an effective horror.This used to scare the heck out of me when I watched it as a kid.Knotts plays his usual, nervous twitchy self, this time as Luther Heggs a copywriter for a small-town newspaper who dreams of becoming a reporter.He gets his chance by getting to spend the night in the old, reputedly haunted, Simmons house where Mrs. Simmons was murdered and Mr. Simmons committed suicide 20 years earlier.

    Editorial Review

    Michael Radford's adaption of George Orwell's foreboding literary premonition casts John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton as lovers who must keep their courtship secret.Aside from criminalizing sex and interpersonal relationships, the ruling party in their country Oceania both fabricates reality and reconstructs history for the sake of oppressing the masses.They brainwash their citizens via large, propaganda-spewing TV monitors installed in their living rooms, which also inspect everyone's activities. Hurt and Hamilton are among the few we see desperately trying to fight the system by keeping control of their thoughts and beliefs.While the atmosphere becomes a bit too stifling at times, the images are quite striking with their muted colors and dilapidated sets. In an interesting bit of casting, Richard Burton costars (in his final role) as a government agent who surreptitiously exposes Hurt to the ideas of resistance. Unlike many like-minded films, Read more

    Look at current events an our culture of fear. Look at them.This movie is great, but read the book 1st if you can.If not at least watch this movie and think about it.It is really scarry when you think about it and how did the author know ahead so far.While you are at it read brave new world.It is great too and will make you think too.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good production, but absolutely pointless
    I should say first that this should be a good movie, at least on paper.John Hurt and Richard Burton turn in solid performances, and everything about the production -- set design, costumes, etc. -- looks just as it should.But there is something lacking in this adaptation that makes it pale compared to the book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie, but...
    When is this gonna be released on DVD for the US? I really loved the book and saw the movie finally and I want to own it. Please release it on DVD for the US. And you think they would since V for Vendetta is similar and coming out on DVD soon. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Writer-director Robert Rossen and character actors Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge (in her film debut) took home Oscars (for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress, respectively) for this excellent adaptation of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Crawford stars as Willie Stark, a charismatic populist Southern politician (inspired by the real Louisiana Governor Huey Long) who belies his "man of the people" roots as he ruthlessly maneuvers, lies, and deals his way into the halls of power. John Ireland is his right-hand man, Jack Burden, a newsman turned political flack who hangs on to Stark's early idealism even in the face of Stark's most reprehensible acts of corruption. McCambridge is Stark's cool mistress come calculating assistant. The immediacy of the drama is due in part to a documentary-like style, notably in the scenes on the campaign trail where Stark sways crowds with his folksy rhetoric and estimable charm. Joanne Dru and John Derek also costar. Rossen's savage screenplay and firm direction give the film a powerful punch, but it's Crawford's blustery charm and oversized performance that carry the picture. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars This Is How To Make An Unbiased Political Movie
    You know what I really appreciated about this political story? The filmmakers went overboard NOT to paint the main character as either a Republican or Democrat, Conservative or Liberal. It winds up, then, being more a human-interest story. In other words, there was no political agenda....unlike most films, especially in the last 50 years.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Famous political novel-turned-film
    Time has been less kind to Robert Rossen's legendary adaptation of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel based on the rise of Huey Long than you might imagine. This film won a passel of Academy Awards in 1949 (including Best Picture) , and it has superb production values and very unusual experimental dialogue (the characters often repeat the same sentence many times for different effect), but the plot is at times confusing, given that many subplots are largely dropped but glancingly alluded to from the original novel. It's often hard to figure out why certain characters, particularly the women, undergo sudden reversals, and you feel constantly as if there were other crucial stories you're not being told. The acting is highly variable, with some very unmemorable performances in underwritten roles but also with some excellent work from Broderick Crawford as the megalomanical central character Willie Stark and Mercedes McCambridge as the hardbitten Sadie (both of whom won Oscars), and from Anne Seymour as Willie's idealistic wife who learns to compromise her values as Willie's star rises. The DVD used right now is fairly unsatisfactory, since the original screen ratio of the film has been significantly altered.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Inside the Mind of the Crooked Politician
    This is an unusual movie, where the hero is also the villain. I wish modern people would see this movie just to understand the difference between the public perception of a powerful politician and the way he behaves in private. Politics is a dirty game that muddies anyone who plays to win. It is a movie about how power corrupts everyone touched even indirectly by that power.

    Sure, Chevy Chase and Carrie Fisher have nice moments in this movie.However, it is everything that swirls around them that makes this so funny."The pearl is in the river." "And they all look alike."Granted that some of the dialog is not politically correct, but it is not mean.

    Editorial Review

    This classic 1964 television special featuring Rudolph and his misfit buddies set the standard for stop-motion animation for an entire generation before Tim Burton darkly reinvented it in the early 1990s. Burl Ives narrates as Sam the Snowman, telling and singing the story of a rejected reindeer who overcomes prejudice and saves Christmas one particularly blustery year. Along the way, he meets an abundance of unforgettable characters: his dentallyobsessed elf pal Hermey; the affable miner Yukon Cornelius and his motley crew of puppies; the scary/adorable Abominable Snow Monster; a legion of abandoned, but still chatty, toys; and a rather grouchy Santa. In addition to the title song that inspired it, this 53-minute tape is crammed with catchy tunes such as"Silver and Gold" and "Holly Jolly Christmas." Those who grew up looking forward to watching Read more

    Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer is indeed the most marvelous Christmas film ever! It is one of many superb animated films written by a great man named Romeo Muller. Rudolph is doubtless his best-loved work. I remember watching the film as a child, delighted and enraptured by the story that it told. Do you remember? Sam the Snowman as narrator (voiced and sung in the performance of a lifetime by Burl Ives); Rudolph the misfit and rejected reindeer; Rudolph's friend, Hermy the Elf, also a misfit because he doesn't like to make toys but wants to be a dentist; Yukon Cornelius, the prospector who befriends them both; the Abominable Snowmonster of the North (whom Yukon, in prospector slang, invariably calls a "bumble"); the Island of Misfit Toys, and its winged lion ruler, King Moonracer; and many other characters and story threads. The presentation, interweaving, and resolution of all of these elements is positively Shakespearean in deftness, wit, poetic beauty and brevity of expression, depth, pathos, joy, moral instruction, and the sense that all ends as indeed it should. Grounded in a deep and sparkling love of all creation, these qualities characterize all of Romeo Muller's films.If you will see it devotedly--indeed, if you will see any and all of Romeo's films--you will become a finer, more compassionate, and a more truly loving human being.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Immortal Christmas Classic FeaturingThe Most Famous Reindeer Of All
    A "true treasure", is really the only way to describe this legendary Christmas television special that originally premiered in 1964. Arthur Rankin's totally captivating stop motion animation was a bench mark for everything that has come since and even with all of our modern computer technology nothing could come close to the beauty of the creations here. The story of that most famous of reindeers, the one and only Rudolph who's initial drawback of having a shiny nose eventually becomes his chief asset, is beautifully told in a music filled special narrated by Burl Ives in a perfect piece of casting as Sam the snowman. This special has quite rightly become a Christmas instituation every year since its initial release and appeals equally to both children and adults with its timeless message of tolerance and acceptance of all who are different. It has happily now been given a deserving release onto DVD back in its original form complete with deleted songs and a superb restoration.

    OK...so I've been in love with James Garner since I was five years old (Maverick days). And yes, I love older men.This movie is an absolute favorite of mine.The chemistry between James Garner and Sally Field is terrific and it winds up being an old-fashioned romance.It doesn't get any better than this. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all time great romantic comedies
    As romantic comedies go,"The April Fools" is one of the undiscovered treasures of the 1960s, comparable to the vanguard of all New York romantic comedies "Breakfast At Tiffany's". This film is far more simplistic (too simplistic it seems for many reviewers in 1969) and perhaps because of this it will strike more of a chord with today's audiences weary of recent ponderous comedies.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My All Time Favorite Movie
    I was working in a movie theater when "The April Fools" first came out. Once the customers were seated,I had a choice of watching either this movie or the then mega hit The Graduate. I saw The Graduate just once.I watched The April Fools over 50 times.I've watched it every time it showed on TV over the past 35 years.I own it,and I'll buy the DVD when I find it.And I'll continue to watch it.5-0 out of 5 stars A light & lovely film, but also with some hidden depths

    Editorial Review

    One of the most ferociously iconoclastic and experimental films of the French New Wave, Alain Resnais's 1961 feature, winner of the grand prize at that year's Venice Film Festival, is based on a script by Alain Robbe-Grillet. At its center is what seems to be a simple but unanswerable puzzle: Did its protagonist (Giorgio Albertazzi) have an affair the year before with a woman (Delphine Seyrig) he just met (or possibly re-met) at his hotel? The inquiry becomes an unsettling experiment in flattening the dimensions of past, present, and future so that any difference between them becomes meaningless, while Resnais's coldly formal but oddly dreamlike geometric compositions make space itself seem a function of subjective memory. Add to that Resnais's trademark tracking shots--long, smooth, a visual correlative of a wordless feeling--and this is a film that truly gets under the skin in almost inexplicable ways. One of the most influential works of its time. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unutterable elegance
    Whatever this is about, once you've seen it, you'll know you've seen something. What I mean is, whatever else you've ever seen, this is something else. Setting aside the helpful and fascinating extra features that came with my disc, by someone called Ginette Vincendeau, and suspending any attempt at prosaic understanding while watching, soak up the incomparable sensation of atmosphere, the sonorous sounds, the stunning sights, the sublimely stylish manner in which the images unroll. It almost makes the effort of interpretation unnecessary. But then, watch it again, and listen to all the explanations offered on all sides: hardly anyone can help coming up with their own ideas. And they are almost all different, since every viewpoint will alter the perspective of any object. There's the viewer who tells us it's actually the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. That long, tall, thin fellow is Death, who could lose, but always wins. This place is Limbo: the Underworld, where memory is erased, and time and place have no meaning, make no sense.Couldbe. Why does Death say he could lose? Answer: Amor Vincit Omnia. There are slight hints of Cinderella and her slipper; or the awakening of the Sleeping Beauty. The Life Force defeating Death and escaping from his dreary clasp. This is partly what Ginette puts forward. But she admits, I think, that this is too mechanical a reading; like the marionette-like dance, and the empty pleasantries of the half-heard conversations. This is a game, within a play, within a film, within a theatre, or on an unanticipated dvd. These people exist at one of civilization's high points, the eighteenth century enlightenment, baroque at the point of rococo, where order is everything, yet giving way to distortion. Or else they are an image of everyday life, its forms and conventions: this is a dateless reality of actually unrealized desires. Watch it a third time, and it becomes erotic. It is the product of a totally European sensibility, a specifically Franco-Germanic sensibility: America is far too adolescent a society ever to have created anything to equal it, in spite of Ginette's instancing Hitchcock, and Kubrick's "The Shining" --- which is lamentably feeble in its supposed emulation.It is easy to recognize genius: you know that however hard you might try, you would never come up with anything to match it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars sunk in time after 46 years
    Surely the film was very brave experiment by Resnais (the director) in 1961 (French "new wave"), introducing to cinematography what Joyce and Proust pioneered in literature at beginning of 20th century. Thus, the film is a great contribution to what we call the FORM rather than the content. That's why I rated it with 3 stars, not just one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why isn't this movie on DVD?
    I must agree with one of the previous reviewers. I think it's ridiculous that this great classic version of A Midsummer Night's Dream isn't available on DVD.I own only a VHS tape that I recorded from television and would much prefer the movie on DVD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!
    Occassionally, a rare and beautiful film becomes avavailable for those with discrimnating taste! I agree that this film is more than worthy of being published on dvd. Taking into account the age of the movie, the effects are amazing! Mickey Rooney is gorgeous as "Puck". Even James Cagney as "Bottom" is outstanding. I can't rave on enough about this film and encourage anyone to see a simply delightful and glorious feast for the eyes. Cocteau's beauty and the beast was filmed about the same era and is an inspiration to directors such as Ridley Scott (Legend, Aliens) As an artist, myself, I pull inspiration and beauty from older movies that today's directors have to fool around with because of the lack of vision and no original ideas.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not a Review, a Rant
    There's something absolutely imbecilic about this not being available on DVD. I mean, Criterion, Kino, those jerks that supply Wal Mart with crappy dollar DVDs, anybody! Bad enough we had to wait years for the Brando Julius Caesar (apparently coming out soon, finally!). What are they waiting for?

    Editorial Review

    This splendid adventure-fantasy from 1990 was adapted from Roald Dahl's book and directed by maverick British filmmaker Nicolas Roeg, who turned out to be a perfect (if seemingly unlikely) interpreter of Dahl's fiendishly clever tale of witchcraft in contemporary England. Scary, funny, and wildly entertaining, it's all about a young boy named Luke (Jasen Fisher) whose parents have died in a tragic accident, and whose grandmother (Mai Zetterling) takes him to a posh hotel in England, where a secret coven of witches is holding its annual convention. The Grand High Witch (Anjelica Huston, in a scene-stealing performance) has decreed that all children in England be turned into mice, and Luke and his pal Bruno (Charles Potter) are the first victims on the list. That's when the movie magicians from Jim Henson's creature shop have their work cut out for them, turning Luke and Bruno into clever little rodents and Read more

    THERE'S NO BETTER MOVIE TO PROPERLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WAS LIKE
    5-0 out of 5 stars agree: the coolest movie ever that nobody's seen
    Even if this movie was made for TV it should have been released for the big screen. As it is nobody seems to know this gem. Insanely great music, Johnny Reno's My Mistake alone worth the price of the tape. Great characters like the Nixer and Dude. This movie has major cult potential if only people knew about it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great JD Hommage - Nonstop Fun
    I have seen this movie more than ten times and I never tire of watching it. It's got everything: humor, action, romance, Blaise Pascal's pensees (remember Nixer's French Fry/Human Condition analogy), and most of all, red hot rock and roll music. Rodriguez's films were lost on me after El Mariachi, but this little gem I cannot praise highly enough. Anyone looking for the songs from the film, check with Norton Records (their 1980s re-issue covers are all over Dude's garage). ... Read more

    "I've never seen a woman who was more like a man," a character observes of Vienna (Joan Crawford), who has just opened a saloon that hasn't exactly endeared itself to the local townspeople. Emma (Mercedes McCambridge), the local sexually repressed, lynch-happy harpy, is particularly displeased. Vienna is wooed both by the Dancin' Kid (Scott Brady) and by Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a peripatetic tough guy-turned-troubadour with whom she has a past.Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Made-for-TV movies in recent years.
    Vlad from New Haven should stick to watching cop shows and shoot 'em ups.He says "The movie is very confusing and it doesn't really show what's supposed to be so significant about Kertz."Really?Spelling KURTZ's name correctly in your review would be a place to start.The film is partly an examination of primitive lifestyles and ancient beliefs, when they come face to face with the intruders from so-called "civilized" society, in the context of what happens to an individual when, as indeed any sane person might, he begins to question everything he previously held to be true.Whether the outcome would be to live the way Kurtz (clearly displayed as an intelligent, literary individual) eventually chose, is open to question, but that in itself is part of the film's allure:What would You/I/A.N.Other do in similar circumstances?What would we become?Alas, modern day tv and movie viewing seems only to consist of sitting in the armchair with a bag of popcorn and yawning during the dialogue sandwiched between the sex, violence and car chases.Vlad, some movies require that you bring a little something to the proceeding yourself, and in so doing you'll take away far more than you ever imagined...not every movie has to have endless explosions in it and square-jawed "heroes" saving the world single handedly at the last minute.The Conrad novel is a very clearly defined portrait of the era in which it was written; European robber barrons plundering ivory in the Belgium Congo, whilst displaying an utter distain towards the natives they encounter along the way, fearing them whilst exploiting them at the same time - The character of Marlow (named as a tribute to the great British writer Christopher Marlowe, second only to, and some claim better than, William Shakespeare; the name Marlowe then being cast as the Knight-errant private eye in seedy Los Angeles by Raymond Chandler) is an "everyman" dispatched by the greedy and wealthy to captain a boat up river and find Kurtz, one of the companies most successful plunderers who appears to have "gone native."What Marlow discovers along the way is far more profound than anything he has encountered before; black African customs and civilized European white behaviour are not so far apart after all; a telling scene is Marlow's repulsion when he witnesses a white European drunkenly beating a black native at the final outpost before his own journey into the darkness.The director Nicholas Roeg captures well nearly every core aspect of the novel, showing clearly that Marlow finds a form of friendship and actual help from the Africans, whilst most of his own (white) fellow company employees make every attempt to prevent him from accomplishing his mission.Heart of Darkness was NOT the basis of Apocalypse Now, and Apocalypse was in no way "the' movie of the book - Heart of Darkness as clearly one of many allegorical inspirations Coppola used in Apocalypse Now, which was far more a "Vietnam experience" movie than it was a European Empire fable.Interestingly, the similarities between the actions of Europeans in Africa and Americans in Asia a century or so later, are clearly apparent, but Apolcayplse Now casts a far wider net, utilising elements of T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land alongside many other sources.Considering Heart of Darkness was probably a fairly low budget Made-for-TV movie, one has to congratulate Roeg on achieving such an excellent evocation of the original novel, and extracting such fine performances from Malkovich and Fox in particular.One cannot even begin to imagine how great this movie could have been had, say, Roeg been given a feature film budget to make it around the time he was coming up withsuch classics as The Man Who Fell to Earth and Don't Look Now.

    2-0 out of 5 stars If you want a movie version of the novel just rent Apocalypse Now
    I sort of knew it wouldn't be good when I rented it and I didn't even know it was a Made-For-TV-Movie then (my bad). Well anyway, it's the movie adaptation of the classic novel which is also the basis for Apocalypse Now. It does have some good acting from Tim Roth, the main character, Isaach de Bankole as their black helper who is also a cannibal, Morten Faldaas as the harlequin (the hippie in Apocalypse), and John Malkovich as Kertz (Brando's character). The problem is that the directing is pretty horrible. For most of the movie nothing happens and then the actual exciting part (where he meets Kertz) is way too short. The movie is very confusing and it doesn't really show what's supposed to be so significant about Kertz.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A rebound for Roeg
    I was curious about this film when I heard about it years ago. I love Nicolas Roegs early work but saw that his later movies were weaker and it seemed Roeg had lost his magic. "Heart of Darkness" is a Nicolas Roeg film and it's quite nice to see the old boy has still got it in him. The subject matter suits his odd style of film making. A good film. DVD please!!! ...
