Crime and Punishment Reviews
This film misses the subconscious aspect that the book has covering what the character thinks of things and misses out on the small details of what the space looked like, the city as far as smell, appearance of the city and room on the larger scale. There is a much bigger thing in the book about paranoia over things that is not said but is thought.
This film is able to capture the Suspicion and feelings even by the actors looks, expressions, lighting, use of space, the where the camera decides to focus on.
This film does a good job on casting and acting. Peter Lorrie does a good job just how he does his acting by adding suspicion, confidence, shame; at the right time.
I like the lighting in the film. The silouiets are well used.
This film looses something by having it set in modern times and having hints of Imperial Russia such as the insignia of Imperial Russia or mentioning the currency, mentioning of the Siberian desert as a form of punishment.
This film looses the context of the times which Crime and Punishment was written in to better understand the way people acted in the days.
This film does not add the context that the Imperial Russian police were corrupt in the period the book was written or daughters still had there husband chosen by the family. The mix in cultural thought in religion and ethnic diversity.
This film had a dumb ending with grand thematic music because he is about to confesses his responsibility for committing the crime of murder on the pawn shop woman.
In some ways I think that this film or book is dumb. Not because of the realism but because of the incompetence, stupidity in bad planning and thinking in those who commit a murder or study crime by an experts who study crime.
Pero su grado de miseria y desesperación le hace empeñar el único bien de valor que posee: un reloj de cadena que su madre le entregó el día de su graduación como recuerdo y herencia de su, al parecer, difundo padre. Acude, por tanto, a una prestamista, y es allí donde conoce a Sonya, una jovencita que empeña su Biblia familiar con tal de conseguir algo de dinero para que su familia pueda comer. Conmovido, decide entregarle el dinero de su reloj a su hermano pequeño.
De mientras, decide huir de esa miseria atacando y asesinando a la vieja prestamista. Por lo que aparece en escena el Inspector General de policía, que le reconoce por su trabajo criminólogo y pide su consejo.
Aquí empieza el tour de force. El inspector investigando pacientemente el crimen, y Raskolnikov tratando de escabullir su responsabilidad, aunque su conciencia por momentos le hace flaquear...
Other than that, no.
