    A stunning drama from that remote former Soviet republic.
  2. The brutality of the fights and Schizo's growing ability to outfox his enemies make for a taut and exciting little picture.
  3. Reviewed by: Ty Burr

    True to its title, Schizo is both gripped by the past and pulled toward an unknown future.
  4. 70
    It's a gripping, understated thriller with a solid emotional undercurrent that builds to an unexpectedly moving denouement.
  5. If one discounts the facile and unconvincing ending, this first feature by Guka Omarova, offers a convincingly bleak view of how a 15-year-old boy could get ahead in rural Kazakhstan in the early 90s.
  6. A modest, formulaic day trip from Kazakhstan.
  7. Reviewed by: Phil Hall

    A compelling screenplay, to be certain. But sadly, Omarova's direction is too leisurely to wring any emotional power.
