“The Turkish title translates as UNDERGROUND, acknowledging that veteran director and self-professed Dostoyevsky admirer Demirkubuz (DESTINY) has taken the author’s classic existential howl Notes from the Undergroundand transposed it to modern-day Ankara. Dostoyevsky’s Underground Man is renamed Mr. Muharrem (TV comedian Günaydın in a fearless change-of-pace performance), a civil servant consumed by spite and self-loathing, which he vents on a mistreated maid, a moody prostitute, and, in the film’s appalling/appallingly funny set piece, a celebration dinner for a former friend who has irksomely become a successful author. In Turkish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (MR)” -Gene Siskel Film Center
