Critic Consensus: Off the Rails sparks interest with its bizarre story, but its impact lingers thanks to its empathetic treatment of its subject -- and clear advocacy for a marginalized sector of society.

Critic Reviews for Off the Rails
If nothing else, Off the Rails, which includes a few too many reenactments for my taste, does what many good documentaries do. It provides us with a window into the psyche of a person worth caring about.
Watching this film stirs a mix of delight in the depth of McCollum's train fascination and pity for how neglected he's been by a system not built to recognize that the root of his crimes is not simply criminal impulse.
Though the film eventually grows as repetitious as its subject's habit, this odd tale has an undeniable bizarro human-interest fascination.
Off The Rails uses interviews, animation and dramatic reconstructions to tell McCollum's strange story but these devices are never flashy or distracting.
