Only a cynic wouldn't appreciate the sincerity at work in "One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das."
| Original Score: 3/5
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
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.
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.
