no one can doubt the sincerity of the filmmaker or subject
| Original Score: B
Only a cynic wouldn't appreciate the sincerity at work in "One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das."
| Original Score: 3/5
The film is for people who are already devotees. Others may find their minds wandering.
An engaging look at the era of enlightenment-seeking when young, shaggy-haired Americans experimented with LSD and traveled to India seeking answers.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Jeremy Frindel's workmanlike docu proceeds in a matter-of-fact manner that neither ignores nor belabors the inspirational aspect of its story.
A mildly engaging introduction to Krishna Das.
| Original Score: 6.25/10
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.
An emotionally wrought documentary about the spiritual journey and immense love story of chant master Krishna Das.
| Original Score: 5/5
Despite its handful of emotional, soul-baring moments, "One Track Heart"... has a once-over-lightly feeling that disappoints.
Insights are few in this fan letter of a documentary.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
The overall product doesn't reveal anything about its subject that a Wikipedia page couldn't do just as well.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
