Movie Info

Henry Jaglom directed this moody meditation on the Vietnam War and one of its disturbed veterans. Dennis Hopper stars a sergeant who travels across the United States with the body of a fallen comrade, on a train to his friend's final burial place. As the train wends its way across the United States, the sergeant becomes more and more paranoid that the passengers on the train are out to get him. Finally, an energetic young woman named Stephanie (Taryn Power) befriends him, briefly giving him the courage to deal with the terrors of the war. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Jaglom seems unable to decide whether he wants it to be a character mosaic or a psychological nightmare ...

Audience Reviews for Tracks


This obscure relic from Dennis Hopper's down-and-out '70s casts the volatile star as a troubled Vietnam soldier on temporary leave, riding a train across country to escort a coffin home for burial. The plot doesn't go much further than this, and most of the film seems improvised and barely sequenced. Faint story threads include Hooper bantering with an eccentric radical (Dean Stockwell, thoroughly stoned from start to finish) and trying to coax a pretty young thing (Taryn Power) into sex. The soundtrack of '40s standards is a strange choice for a movie with such a topical theme.
