Raskolnikow is a 1923 German silent drama film directed by Robert Wiene.[1] The film is based on the novel Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, whose protagonist is Rodion Raskolnikov. The film's art direction is by André Andrejew.

The film is characterised by Jason Buchanan of Allmovie as a German expressionist view of the story: a "nightmarish" avante-garde or experimental psychological drama.[2]
