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.

It's a gripping, understated thriller with a solid emotional undercurrent that builds to an unexpectedly moving denouement.

Six weeks' filming, some auspicious debuts, and an un-noisy satisfying gem.

A stark and stylistic hybrid of the Dardennes' formal austerity and Terrence Malick's lyricism.

The beauty of coming-of-age movies such as this is that we can somehow relate to its odd protagonist in spite of his predicaments.
