There isn't much to see here, as the plot is quite simple: a man kills and spends the entire film dreading his capture by the police. However, Crispin Glover's performance of a man riddled with guilt and fear (what he does best) is worth seeing, as he encapsulates every emotion with authenticity and complex emotion.

Literal but strange adaptation of the story. Glover is very weird, even by his standards. Seeing Moscow is nice.

A fairly good adaptation of the novel. The scenes are dark and close, which compliments the story nicely, and Crispin Glover is humorous, creepy and likeable all at once, delivering a good performance as Raskolnikov. Loses points for the thick American accents though.

A fairly dull and uninspired adaptation of Dostoyevsky's novel. Crispin Glover is irritating and unconvincing in the lead role. Cinematography is drab, like the movie was made in the 1960s. Direction is listless, with no imagination.

If you were hoping to watch this instead of reading the book, don't.
