(es) wrote: Eine nette Parodie auf das Gore-Genre gewrzt mit einer kleinen Liebesgeschichte. Nicht mehr nicht weniger. Aber eher weniger. Ein Zeitvertreib.
(ag) wrote: A lot more documentary than movie. Unlike King of Kong, there is no real central narrative. It just jumps around and constantly. Although it is informative and well shot, it just isn't super compelling.
(es) wrote: One of George Harrison's few endeavors as a Producer through Handmade Films was this very interesting thriller, "Track 29".It's a very off-beat, but thematically tight, story of a son looking for his mother. Americana from the vantage point of Nic Roeg is very Lynchian and sexualized. It borrows its likeness from "Lolita" and "Psycho" -- but much funnier. Gary Oldman's performance was thoroughly entertaining and unsettling. His magnificent portrayal of a man-child was both manic and funny. Theresa Russell also carried her character well as this pseudo-mother/daughter. All performances around were tough to tackle, but they all did a magnificent job.What interested me most about this film was how much distance it created with its uncomfortable closeness. Instead of getting closer to these characters, Roeg creates a gap between you and the absurdity. This helps the comedic aspects all around.When it reaches its boiling point, the extravagant conclusions are found with a sly wink. "Track 29" is a macrolook into the mommy/daddy issues we all suffer at the heights of creating our own realities - be it film, music...or model train sets.
(mx) wrote: Small film with pretentions way above its head. It is rather bashy of french and of arabs. Probably another english propagandist film. The story is rather ridiculous and may be alluring for westerns viewers with a change of decor. I don't think there is much truth in the film, to add insult to injury.

As it is cool to have a finale to the main Shrek series, it still doesn't have something that made the first two great. While I'm saying that, the film is very entertaining and a must for Shrek fans.

(gb) wrote: Mickey Rorke's finest performance! He should be an Oscar contender for this stellar portrayal of a most unusual character. Every performance is spot on and the dialigue and story line do not disappoint. This is a must see for drama lovers and Mickey Rourke lovers as well.
