Pretty much similar to the plot of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment,Match Point has a protagonist who is a thorough social climber who kills an old lady deeming his interests superior compared to those around him. His mental anxieties,the guilt and his responses are quite similar to those of Raskolnikov's,yet pretty different in the way Allen has depicted him as a modern day man. Chris (Rhys Meyers) is man person whose every action is driven by a greed for money and his motives are interrupted by lust-he commits mistakes and relies on his luck to escape the aftermath. A thrilling screenplay with strong performances,Match Point is worth several watches.
