Certainly, Crime and Punishment is a broader topic than politics and might mitigate some of the tendencies to be fixated on the present moment, perhaps even in a positive way. I think it could also go sideways. 

I'm waffling over my vote now, because in thinking of "Crime and Punishment" as a broader topic, I would love to nominate Out of Sight (Soderbergh 1998), which I recently re-watched. Also, "Crime and Punishment" is a topic that might finally acknowledge the brilliance of Kind Hearts and Coronets, which didn't make it to "Comedy."

There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)

See also: Guys and Dolls, Chicago, The Music Man, and (arguably) The Greatest Showman.

This is getting more interesting than expected...
