TRACKS is a reminder that a film doesn’t need to be overly plotted or bogged down with a large cast to be good. The simple literal and spiritual act of a resolute main character, played wonderfully by Mia Wasikowska, traveling through the Australian desert to reach the ocean can carry a film. Adam Driver’s character, an earnest and talkative photographer, was a good counter weight to Mia’s introspective character. John Curran’s direction was good and Mandy Walker’s cinematography was amazing.

Grade: A-
