Schism is a display of independent film making brilliance.
24 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Schism is a display of independent film making brilliance.

John Lyons has proved that a moving story beats a big budget in the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" game of film making. In this story of end of life reflection, Mr. Lyons has captured to most intricate nuances of the fragile mind in a graphical depiction that leaves the audience on the edge of their seat.

With the help of seasoned local actors, he dives into his broad wealth of photographic magic to pull out a winner. Cinematography, audio clarity, and creative imagery are helpful, but the synthesis of reality and the dark recesses of the aging mind add an unexpected but very appreciative twist.

Congratulations John, on a moving masterpiece.
