Editorial Reviews

George Harrison’s Handmade Films presents Track 29, starring Gary Oldman (Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy, Sid and Nancy), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future, Taxi), and Theresa Russell (Wild Things). Distraught and dreamy Linda Henry (Russell) is unhappy with her sexless, childless marriage to surgeon Henry Henry (Lloyd). Desperate for a diversion, she is captivated when Martin (Oldman) suddenly drops in on Linda claiming to be the child she gave up for adoption after a teenage pregnancy. They spend time together trying to find a bond, but strange behaviors and bizarre events indicate that things aren’t as they seem. Is Martin really the son she gave up for adoption at birth or just figment of her imagination?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film - poor quality DVD. May 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This meeting of writer Dennis Potter and filmmaker Nicolas Roeg is, as others have noted, nearly indescribable, surreal, outrageous, sometimes confusing but never boring. I don't think it gives anything away to say that Gary Oldman's character is a hallucination conjured by Theresa Russell's character (this is made clear in a bar scene fairly early in the film), which for me accounts for much of his bizarre and over-the-top acting - he's not supposed to be a real character so why should he act like one? She has imagined him and everything he does so he can do whatever she wants - he is an extension of her. There are some ways in which this film reminds me of Robert Altman's excellent and overlooked "Images" in that both films chart the emotional disintegration of the heroine and you are never sure in either film whether what you're seeing is real or not. If you enjoy Roeg films like "Bad Timing" and "Insignificance" you may like "Track 29" as well. If nothing else the film would be worth watching just for the glee on Sandra Bernhard's face as she spanks Christopher Lloyd's bare bottom with her rubber-gloved hands - she makes every film she's in something special. Now we get to my real reason for writing this review, to caution people about this DVD. This is my first experience with a made-to-order DVD and I'm not impressed. It is merely a copy of a videotape, you can see the old tracking static in the bottom portion of the screen from time to time. To say there are no special features is putting it lightly, there isn't even scene selection, which has become so ubiquitous that we don't notice it unless it is gone. Picture quality is bad as is sound, but it is watch-able and it is the only way I have found to get this wonderful and unusual film on DVD, other than a $25 Danish version. So the DVD gets one star while the movie itself gets four stars; good, but not great Roeg.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Starnge little ditty from The Roeg & Russell era. July 25, 2011
By Panda
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is a 1987 film about a bored alcoholic and metally

disturbed houswife from South Carolina named Linda(Theresa

Russell). She is trapped in a marriage to Henry(Christopher

Lloyed) who would rather play with his toy train hobby then make

love to her. Meanwhile Linda is haunted by flashbacks of her

teenage rape that produced a son and is disturbed by her regrets

of giving up her son for adoption. Ironically a man named Martin

(Gary Oldman)mysteriuolsy comes into her life & claims to be her

long lost son. However linda and her friend Arlanda(Collen Camp)

are the only one who can see Martin ???? The film is unlikable,

yet oddly facinating.The film also has a good casts, including

Sandra Bernhard. The ending of the movie has remained with me

for years. This movie is not for mainstream buffs, as it is

strange, campy and frustrating all rolled into one. The film was

direceted by legendary filmaker Nicholas Roeg(Don't look Now,The

Witches), who is known for strange and perverse filmaking.

Although this may not be one of Roegs best films, it is however

a thinkers film. Which is totally Roeg. Movie trivia alert.. The

film was produced by Beatle George Harrison "Hand Made Film"

Company. This was also one of Roeg & ex wife Theresa Russell's

last known Colaboration before "Cold Heaven" in 1990.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliantly Performed "Twisted Work of Art" ! April 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Of course, anything Dennis Potter writes is brilliant, and - Anything - anything at ALL - which stars the MAGNIFICENT Gary Oldman is worth 5 stars off the top... This is an off-beat drama concerning a lonely, beautiful house-wife, approaching madness, who believes the baby son she was forced to give up as a teenager has now come back to her. Oldman plays the boy, and gives the role such a plethora of emotions, his performance is VIRTUALLY startling.... This CAN be a BIT difficult to understand, and it is NOT for the viewer who wants mindless entertainment....this is a thinker's movie, and it is wonderful. Co-starring are Christopher Lloyd, who is ALWAYS an asset to a movie, and the delightful Sandra Berhard, who contributes wonderfully.
Don't buy the popcorn for this one, but DO sit back and enjoy it....!

Most people who watch this go away mumbling "where was the plot" it was there, buried, but there. I love this film. Then again, I'm a huge Oldman fan. This was one of his earlier performances and you can see the actor that was to come. His portrayal of Martin, an alcoholic's fantasy version of her long-lost son, is magnificent. He shifts from man to boy, lover to child brilliantly. I wish I could praise his co-stars as highly. Theresa Russell's stiff performance as the bored alcoholic housewife left me cold and, for my money, Christopher Lloyd and Sandra Bernhard could have been left out completely. The only reason to watch the film is Gary Oldman, but his performance makes it worth watching again and again...just keep the ffwd button close.
"MOMMY!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Mother : you left me but I never left you ! November 2, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The initial lines of this famous Lennon `s composition will be the clever device to develop an intriguing story where the love of a homeless guy and a strange twist of fate will make of him (Gary Oldman ) establish a fascinating erotic affair with Theresa Russell one of of the supreme femme fatale of the eighties .

As always Roeg surprises us with his challenging handle camera and shot angles .

Terrific cast and a well elaborated script make of that bizarre story a very hard to watch movie .

The movie is just so weird. Even in the end you're wondering if Gary Oldman's character is real or not. Psychologically messed up, but I can't stop watching.
