Has melds his interest in 19th-century literature and knack for conjuring the fantastic with this delirious and beautifully crafted adaptation of James Hogg’s 1824 novel The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. Set in Scotland, the film concerns a deceased young man whose corpse is exhumed by grave robbers; the young man returns to life in order to recount the events that preceded his demise—namely, his efforts to prove that committing foul deeds does not disqualify someone from the possibility of redemption, as well as his curious relationship with his own bloodthirsty doppelgänger.
