“A marvel of simplicity, depth, and deviousness”
—Film Comment

“A gigantic four-hour saga composed with pellucid clarity”
—The Guardian

Loosely based on Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” and directed by Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz, this four-hour examination into evil, morality, and meaning finds the beauty in the mundane and the devastation in the silence. A slow-cinema touchstone and a modern classic.
