Orson Welles' Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad’s best-known contribution to literature was, of course, Heart of Darkness. We do have a pretty faithful adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg and an inspired re-imagining in the form of Apocalypse Now but if you know anything as a film buff, you know that Orson Welle’s would have done it better, or at least more intriguingly. An entirely subjective film in which the camera only shows us Marlow’s point of view is just one of the purported tricks Welles had up his sleeve for this film, which is only one of the many unrealised projects in his weird career.
