'Devils' ('Besy'), also known in English as 'The Possessed' and 'The Demons' is the third of Dostoevsky's five major novels. It is at once a powerful political tract and a profound study of atheism, depicting the disarray which follows the appearance of a band of modish radicals in a small provincial town. Dostoevsky compares the radicals to the devils that drove the Gadarene swine over the precipice in his vision of a society possessed by demonic creatures that produce devastating delusions of rationality. The novel is full of buffoonery and grotesque comedy. The plot is loosely based on the details of a notorious case of political murder, but Dostoevsky weaves suicide, rape, and a multiplicity of scandals into a compelling story of political evil.

Brothers Karamazov is one of my favorite of Yul's film roles. His performance as Dimitri in the film adaptation of Dostoevsky's classic Russian novel is as close to perfect as it could be. Yul's scenes are the best in the film but all in all this is as good a film adaptation as could be produced during the 1950's. Even Mr. Star Trek himself, William Shatner, is fairly good in it as Alyosha. The biggest disappointment casting wise is Ivan, played by Richard Basehart (MST3K comes to mind!). But the father and Grushenkaya, played admirably by the German actress Maria Schell. Marilyn Monroe wanted the part but I don't think she would've had the earthiness required for the part.
