One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das
In 1970, suburban teen Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock 'n' roll stardom - turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a guru named Neem Karoli Baba, otherwise known as Maharaji. (c) Zeitgeist

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Only a cynic wouldn't appreciate the sincerity at work in "One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das.""
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"An engaging look at the era of enlightenment-seeking when young, shaggy-haired Americans experimented with LSD and traveled to India seeking answers."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"no one can doubt the sincerity of the filmmaker or subject"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Worshipful documentary about rocker turned guru Krishna Das will basically appeal to the already-and very, very happily so-converted."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Despite its handful of emotional, soul-baring moments, "One Track Heart"... has a once-over-lightly feeling that disappoints."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Jeremy Frindel's workmanlike docu proceeds in a matter-of-fact manner that neither ignores nor belabors the inspirational aspect of its story."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"The film is for people who are already devotees. Others may find their minds wandering."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"The overall product doesn't reveal anything about its subject that a Wikipedia page couldn't do just as well."
‑ Drew Hunt, Slant Magazine
"Insights are few in this fan letter of a documentary."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Despite its spiritual subject matter, this documentary doesn't dig very deep."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A mildly engaging introduction to Krishna Das."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"An emotionally wrought documentary about the spiritual journey and immense love story of chant master Krishna Das."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
