There are quite a few things to like about The Tracey Fragments, but the ultimate feeling I left with was one of contrivance - of difference for difference's sake.

Will be remembered as a shard in Page's filmography.

I hated this movie. I really did.

An exploration of the heightened, extreme emotional sensations of adolescence, The Tracey Fragments is demanding and relentless, an image overload in search of resolution.

The Tracey Fragments is a grating stunt that plays like a film-school project, cutting a bland story into a million tiny irritating pieces.

The basic power of the plot's rewound revelation isn't there, shrapneled by the form . . . Some films reward multiple viewings, but this film, offering multiple views, falls short of being memorably singular.

It's a story that could have and should have been told in a short film free of McDonald's gimmicks.

May 8, 2008
The cinematic equivalent of a hyper-pretentious, solo performance piece whose style grows tiresome before you've even finished reading the playbill.

Too insubstantial to sustain the stylistic excesses of the multiple split screen approach

Arty to the nth degree, splintered and, yes, fragmented

Self-indulgent and relentlessly unpleasant...

Even the adorable Ellen Page is entitled to perform in a dud.

Even with the film's scant running time of 77 minutes, the unrelenting use of Mondrian splitscreen is bound to give anyone a headache.

By the time The Tracey Fragments fills in its last dark fragments, they don't have the emotional impact they probably should have.

The storytelling eventually gets bogged down in its own fancy footwork, leaving a viewer to wonder why everything was laid out in such a complex way.

This angsty Canadian movie directed by Bruce McDonald takes its title all too literally: Every sequence is splintered into multiple split screens, which means that you can follow the dreary, semi-incomprehensible action from many viewpoints at once.

[Page is] virtually the sole reason to see this duller-than-it-sounds experiment.

This audacious puzzlement is worth seeing, I guess, for some startling and innovative visual designs. But it doesn't amount to anything more substantial than a technical tour de force.
