  • Has the punch of a good Western with a clean and direct script plus an adventurous use of songs and folk paintings. show more

  • The Tracker is one of those rare films that deserves to be called haunting. It tells the sort of story we might find in an action Western, but transforms it into a fable or parable. show more

  • A third aspect of The Tracker is less successful. In a badly calculated move, Mr. de Heer and singer Graham Tardif fill the soundtrack with songs full of clichés, platitudes, and truisms. show more
