Track 29

Though clearly of above-average quality in direction, psychology and Theresa Russell's 3-D performance as a childless housewife with a dark secret in the closet, Track 29 is connected closely to the classic American smalltown horror film.

Though clearly of above-average quality in direction, psychology and Theresa Russell’s 3-D performance as a childless housewife with a dark secret in the closet, Track 29 is connected closely to the classic American smalltown horror film.

Screenplay is set in a Southern town where strange things happen every day. Linda (Russell) and husband Henry (Christopher Lloyd) are at odds over Linda’s burning desire for a child and Henry’s preference for his model trains. He also enjoys being spanked by Nurse Stein (Sandra Bernhard).

Into this world of normal absurdity arrives a stranger. Young Martin (Gary Oldman) convinces Linda he’s her baby boy born out of wedlock and taken from her at birth, but viewer begins to have doubts that the appearing-disappearing weirdo isn’t a figment of her imagination.

Perverse humor is the keynote of the Oedipal complexed duo, who spend a long day going to bars, exchanging unplatonic caresses, and acting out their traumas. Russell and Oldman are consummate thesps able to reach the edge of frenzy (and beyond) while remaining fun and original.
