Audience Reviews for Tracks
Tracks is the true story of a teenager in New Jersey who mindlessly flipped the switch on a track thinking it'd send it in the oppisite direction, rather, the train derailed and killed the conductor. This video follows one out of three of the boys that was some of the first to serve in the New Jersey State Prison, Maximum Security, as Juveniles. The film is pretty emotional to watch as you get a glimpse at how easily an individual's life can be thrown upside down from the smallest bad decision (rather the result was intended or not). The struggle the juvenile faces prior and in prison is hard to watch, as well as the "Time" his family is spending as well, such as his mother and high school girlfriend while they are forced to watch their loved one suffer. A student of Criminal Justice, this movie plays with my mind a bit, realizing the power our system holds in its hands when making pending on decisions of circumstance between cases that will rattle lives forever. Waiting to see if the boy will survive is drawn out in just enough time that it keeps you on the edge of your seat and seeing the aftermath of the entire situation is rough but inspiring. Pretty decent film! Ice-T makes a performance as a correction officer and sings some of the songs. A very well done movie like documentary of what goes on in prisons and those who are forced to do "Hard-Time".
Felt like a Lifetime movie of the week with a lot of swearing. Performances were alright, but Chris Gunn did not look like no 15 year old, more like 30. Had some decent moments and the acting was alright.
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.
