Despite its handful of emotional, soul-baring moments, "One Track Heart"... has a once-over-lightly feeling that disappoints.

The film is for people who are already devotees. Others may find their minds wandering.

Jeremy Frindel's workmanlike docu proceeds in a matter-of-fact manner that neither ignores nor belabors the inspirational aspect of its story.

Worshipful documentary about rocker turned guru Krishna Das will basically appeal to the already-and very, very happily so-converted.

Despite its spiritual subject matter, this documentary doesn't dig very deep.

A fine enough documentary, a nice enough introduction to a charismatic figure with a fascinating life, an unusual art and worldwide fans.

Frindel can't rescue Kagel from marginalization as a New Agey preacher man, but he does portray this hippest of all Krishnas as someone who deeply believes in the self-sacrificing mantra he chants ...

Modest and affecting, it's a portrait of the possibility of finding peace, contentment and self through both music and spirituality.

The overall product doesn't reveal anything about its subject that a Wikipedia page couldn't do just as well.
