Time to go.
To turn yourself in?
Yes. But i don't know why.
Because by taking your suffering, you'll be taking away half your crime.
Crime? Some crime. I killed a filthy old money lender, Dounia. A louse! I'm only going to confess because... I'm a coward. A mediocrity.

That review criticizing Dostoevsky (the one above with one star) is absolute garbage. This movie is spot on with the book and the book itself is mind-blowing. To describe it in the 1000 word limit this review imposes would be a grave injustice. The film is so long that it is split into two parts, all because the director wanted the film to stand true to the novel. You will find no substantial omissions from the book in this film. I'd like to see the ignoramus who gave that review direct me to the novel he/she wrote. Put your money where your mouth is. It seems highly arrogant to me that one should go out of his way to search the internet for this IMDb page just to rant on Dostoevsky and how much his work sucks. Get a life.
