“I am a sick man. ... I am a spiteful man. I am an unattractive man. I believe my liver is diseased.” With those terrifying words begin one of the masterpieces of world literature, now adopted for a groundbreaking cinematic experience by Gary Walkow, with Henry Czerny giving petrifying life to the central character of Fyodor Dostoevsky's “Notes From Underground.” Miserable, arrogant, and self-destructive, the narrator of Dostoevsky's pioneering psychological thriller in existential angst peels off one after another layer of an over-active imagination that like cancer is feeding on its own annihilation. This breathtaking cinematic adaptation of "Notes from Underground" gives it an uncanny visual space to breathe, multi-layered tunnels of time to exorcise its diabolic genius. (1995)
