  • Set in modern-day Kazakhstan, where the quiet is broken only by brutishness, this classically shot and edited film is a spare yet entrancing tale drawn with precise strokes.

    May 30, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A sense of existential dread that would make the Russkie novelist beam is channeled beautifully, but for a filmmaker lauded for his minimalist aesthetic, Omirbayev sure loves broad-stroke symbolism and sloganeering.

    May 28, 2013 | Rating: 3/5
  • Darezhan Omirbaev's sixth feature-whose unnamed, largely quiet protagonist lives in a poor area of Almaty, Kazakhstan-is a pedagogical film.

  • Kazakh cinema's stalwart auteur Darzhan Omirbaev adapts Crime and Punishment to modern-day Almaty, but with little to say beyond the obvious.

    May 28, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It certainly doesn't outlast its welcome and fulfils its admittedly modest ambitions.

    May 22, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, Omirbaev fails to invest either the murder plot or its political subtext with much suspense or conviction.
