Kazakhstan | 2012 | Darezhan Omirbayev
A college film student in present-day Almaty commits a senseless robbery and murder in this fleet, spare adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. This new movie by master Kazakh filmmaker Dareshan Omirbayev (Killer) is one of his best. “A stark, Bressonian tale…Omirbayev once again offers a quietly scathing portrait of his homeland, which, on the evidence here, is on the verge of losing its soul in the pursuit of Range Rovers, banal soap operas and other ephemeral pleasures.” –Variety.
