The Train

The Train ★★★★

I love that every 15 minutes the protagonist of this "we must save the art" movie says something like "fuck art" and then there's another 10 minute sequence showing how trains are repaired.

Yeah, it's probably too long and we probably don't need to see every knob turn and lever pull and the accents make no sense and you really have to squint to buy Burt Lancaster as a Frenchman and the sound effects are cheesy and there is way too much train whistle and the dubbing is pronounced and Jeanne Moreau is largely wasted, but I was super into it anyway.
