Omarova's thoughtful offering is not so much a visual triptych of the country but a human portrait of youthful purpose in the face of fisted danger.

The exotic setting and the starkness with which the young man's story is told--along with Nusuppaev's muted charisma--help it transcend the narrative commonplaces.

The acting is first-rate throughout ... The brutality of the fights and Schizo's growing ability to outfox his enemies make for a taut and exciting little picture.

It's unlikely that many Americans know much about Kazakhstan ... Schizo gives them a fascinating tour -- of its wide steppes, its dusty cities, its grimy mines.

Pleasingly pulpy story fits right in with indigenous, Slavic tradition and current fascination with gangster fare.
