Crime and Punishment (BBC)

This acclaimed BBC adaptation remains faithful to Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel. Set in St. Petersburg in the second half of the 19th century, the psychological thriller tells of Rodya Raskolnikov (John Simm), a desperate young murderer caught in a web of his own guilt. Eschewing the straightforward approach taken by earlier adaptations, director Julian Jarrold stages tight, uncomfortable close-ups and vertigo-inducing camera angles, virtually forcing the viewer to become as neurotic and unraveled as Raskolnikov. Actually filmed on location in St. Petersburg in the former Soviet Union and co-starring Ian McDiarmid, Geraldine James and Nigel Terry.
